Grand Canyon, Ariz. – In honor of those that serve and have served in the United States military, national park units around the country, including Grand Canyon National Park, will be offering everyone fee-free entry on Tuesday, November 11.
Visitors who plan to enter (or re-enter) the park after November 11 will be charged the regular entrance fee. Park visitors are reminded that the fee-free designation applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours, or use of concessions. Park entrance stations will have park passes such as Interagency Senior, Annual and Access Passes, and the Annual Military Pass.
Active duty members of the U.S. Military and their dependents can also pick up a free Annual Pass. Those wishing to obtain a pass must show a current, valid military identification card. More information about this free annual pass is available at www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm.
In 2015 there are nine fee free days:
· January 19: Martin Luther King Jr. Day
· February 14-16 Presidents Day weekend
· April 18-19 National Park Week's opening weekend
· August 25: National Park Service's 99th birthday
· September 26: National Public Lands Day
· November 11: Veterans Day
