Fee Free Weekend at Zion National Park
Contact: Ron Terry, 435-772-0160
Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced free admission to all National Park Service sites on this weekend. The free weekend provides encouragement for all Americans to visit their National Parks.
"This fee-free weekend provides an opportunity for individuals and families alike to take an affordable vacation or to explore a nearby park they have never visited before," Salazar said. "I encourage everyone to take advantage of the free admission to visit not only our greatest natural wonders but also our nation's historic and cultural icons."
Visitors are reminded that the fee waiver applies to entrance fees only and does not include special use fees such as camping and backcountry permits. All Zion National Park facilities will be open and the free shuttle system will be operating to transport visitors to the points of interest and trailheads in Zion Canyon.
Additional fee free days are scheduled for September 25, and November 11. These fee free days are intended to encourage Americans to get outdoors and experience their public lands.
