America the Beautiful – The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Passes

The America the Beautiful – The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass Series includes different options of interagency passes that provide access to more than 2,000 federal recreation areas across the United States.

Passes cover:

  • entrance fees at National Park Service and US Fish and Wildlife sites
  • standard amenity fees (day-use fees) at Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, US Forest Service, and US Army Corps of Engineers sites

In general, passes cover the above types of fees for everyone in a personal vehicle at per-vehicle fee areas or up to four adults at sites that charge per person. Children ages 15 or under are admitted free. Two lifetime passes (Senior and Access) provide additional benefits, such as a 50-percent discount on camping at some sites. Always check with individual sites for details.

Interagency passes include:

  • Annual Pass: $80
  • Annual Military Pass: Free*
  • Annual Fourth Grade Pass for US students in fourth grade: Free
  • Annual Senior Pass: $20
  • Lifetime Senior Pass: $80
  • Lifetime Access Pass: Free
  • Annual Volunteer Pass: Free (250 hours of volunteer service at any of the six participating federal agencies is required)

*A new program that provides free access for US military veterans and Gold Star Family members took effect in fall 2020 as a way to thank them for their support of our country and to encourage them to explore recreational opportunities on their public lands and waters. Find detailed information about who qualifies, acceptable forms of identification, and how to download a Gold Star Family voucher.

Fifth Grade Voucher (valid only through August 31, 2021)

For the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year and summer, US fifth graders can bring their families to national parks, national forests and grasslands, wildlife refuges, and other Department of the Interior, US Forest Service, and US Army Corps of Engineers-managed public lands and waters for free. Find more information including who is eligible and how to get a free voucher.
