America The Beautiful Pass
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve does NOT have an entrance fee. Because of this, we do not sell federal land passes in our visitor centers. However, most other national parks and many other land agencies do charge an entrance fee. If you're planning to visit multiple national parks and federal sites, you might consider purchasing a pass before your trip.
The National Park Service, US Forest Service, US Fish & Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Bureau of Reclamation offer interagency passes. These passes are valid only in the United States and are not valid in Canada. The four passes in the interagency program are:
America the Beautiful - Annual Pass
America the Beautiful - Senior Pass
America the Beautiful - Access Pass
America the Beautiful - Volunteer Pass
Golden Eagle Passport and National Parks Pass and Golden Eagle Hologram
Golden Age Passport
Golden Access Passport
