President’s Day Weekend is Fee Free
To celebrate Presidents Day weekend, Theodore Roosevelt National Park will waive entrance and camping fees February 15-17.
"We invite everyone to follow Theodore Roosevelt's example and enjoy the outdoors by visiting the park this weekend," said Superintendent Valerie Naylor. "As Roosevelt said, 'It is an incalculable added pleasure to any one's sum of happiness if he or she grows to know, even slightly and imperfectly, how to read and enjoy the wonder-book of nature.'"
For those who are interested in experiencing our history, the other two national park units in North Dakota – Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site near Williston and Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site near Stanton – are among the more than 200 national parks that never charge entrance fees.
In addition to the Presidents Day weekend, national parks will also offer free entrance to open National Park Week on April 19 and 20; on National Park Service Founders' Day, August 25; on National Public Lands Day, September 27; and on Veterans' Day, November 11.
National Park passes that provide free or discounted admission year round are available for active duty military members and their dependents, senior citizens, and people with permanent disabilities.
Information on all 401 units of the National Park System is available at www.nps.gov.
