Free Entry To Yellowstone Monday

The National Park Service (NPS) turns 98 on Monday, August 25. To celebrate, admission to Yellowstone and all national parks is free that day; however, camping and other fees will not be waived.

The NPS is waiving entrance fees on 9 days in 2014 as a way to encourage people to get outdoors and enjoy the remarkable landscapes and historical and cultural sites national parks have to offer.

Other fee free dates still to come this year are National Public Lands Day on September 27 and Veterans Day, November 11.

A seven-day pass to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks is normally $25 for a private, non-commercial vehicle.
