Park Passes

Dayton Aviation Heritage NHP does not sell the America the Beautiful National Parks & Federal Recreation Lands Pass but you can visit the USGS Online Store to purchase select passes and to order select passes. Most passes can be purchased through a mail-in application, online or by calling (See notes for each card below).

These passes are valid for entry of up to four people in a single vehicle at all National Park Service fee sites. Additionally, the passes are also accepted at four other federal recreation agencies that have entrance fees, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Reclamation.

The pass series consists of the Annual Pass, the Senior Pass*, the Access Pass and the free Annual Pass for U.S. Military. Children under the age of 16 are admitted free at all NPS fee sites.

  • The Annual Pass is available to anyone over the age of 16. The cost is $80. NOTE: Can be purchased online or via telephone at 1-888-ASK-USGS (1-888-275-8747), Ext. 3, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm MST.

Senior Pass Changes


On August 28th, 2017, the price of the America the Beautiful – The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass increased for the first time since 1994. The cost increased to $80 from $10 for a lifetime pass. Seniors (age 62 & older) also have the option to purchase an annual Senior Pass for $20 should they choose to not opt for the $80 Lifetime pass. If purchased consecutively for four years, all four Annual Senior Pass cards can be exchanged for a Lifetime Senior Pass. The additional revenue will be used to enhance the visitor experience in parks.

Learn more about the changes, what they mean for you, and how the additional funds will be used when you visit the National Park Service's Senior Pass changes page.
