The Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act established a new pass program to replace the National Parks Pass and Golden Eagle, Golden Age, and Golden Access Passports. The America the Beautiful - the National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass program provides a number of pass options for the public to use at Federal recreation sites where entrance or standard amenity fees are charged.
If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and age 62 or older, you may qualify for a Senior Pass.
If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and have a permanent disability, you may qualify for an Access Pass.
Older passes and passports
- The Golden Age and the Golden Access Passports will continue to be honored for the lifetime of the pass holder, so both passes, along with the new Interagency Senior and Access Passes, will be valid for many years to come.
