Passes are required

Harpers Ferry National Historical Park visitors are required to have a park entrance pass.

All vehicles must display a park entrance pass or receipt where it is clearly visible through the windshield.

America the Beautiful passholders: please display your pass signature side up on your vehicle's dashboard, where it can clearly be seen through the windshield.


Exception: visitors who purchase their park pass online via the QR code or website displayed on parking lot fee signage will have no physical pass to display: compliance will be checked via your license plate. Alternately, you can write your pass confirmation number on a piece of paper, to display on your dashboard.

All the money from entrance fees remains in the National Park Service, and at least 80% stays in the park where it was collected. Find out how fees are used to improve your park experience.
