Devils Tower National Monument will be joining over 400 national park units across the country in commemoration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with free entry into the park on Monday, January 19, 2015.
National parks hold special experiences for everyone—hardcore hikers and campers and people who like to explore history, take a leisure nature walk, or simply pack a picnic lunch and get away from it all. Visitors of all abilities and interests can enjoy a holiday, often without making more than a short trip from home.
“Fee free days are excellent opportunities to take friends and family to Devils Tower and walk the Tower Trail, a short 1.3 miles around the base of the Tower,” said Nancy Stimson, chief of interpretation and education. The National Park Service will waive admission fees on 8 other days in 2015 – President’s Day weekend (February 14-16), the first weekend of National Park Week (April 18 &19), the National Park Service’s 99th birthday (August 25), National Public Lands Day (September 26), and Veterans Day (November 11).
National park passes that provide free or discounted admission are available for active duty military members and their dependents, senior citizens, and people with permanent disabilities. For more information on national park fee free days, visit www.nps.gov/findapark/
