BERLIN, Maryland: Assateague Island National Seashore will be joining national park units across the country in celebrating Veterans Day with fee free entry into the park. The entrance fee waiver applies at both the Maryland and Virginia districts of the National Seashore.

This year, the fee free entrance will apply the entire Veteran's Day weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 11 - 13. Visitors who arrive on November 11, 12 or 13 will be allowed to enter the National Seashore free of charge. Those who plan to spend time in the park beyond November 13 will need to pay the regular entrance fee for the remainder of their stay.

"We're pleased to provide fee free entrance to the National Seashore in recognition of America's veterans and their families", said Superintendent Trish Kicklighter. "The men and women of the armed forces are our Nation's caretakers and we're proud to honor their service."

First time visitors are encouraged to stop at either of the Seashore's two Visitor Centers to see exhibits and get information about the many recreational activities and natural features in the Seashore. Visitors are reminded that the fee-free days applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours, or other activities where fees are normally charged.
