2024 Free Entrance Days in the National Parks

Come experience the national parks! All National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone (other fees may apply). Mark your calendar for these entrance fee-free dates:


Beginning May 1, 2024, the fees to tour the FDR Home or Vanderbilt Mansion will increase from $10 to $15 per individual 16 years and older. Those 15 years old and younger would still enter for free. The change in fees also includes a new yearly park specific pass for both the Home of FDR and Vanderbilt Mansion for $45 and includes the card holder plus 3 additional guests.

The entrance fee increase will not change the National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Passes that are valid for entry at national parks, including the Annual, Senior, Access, 4th Grade, Military Annual, and Military Lifetime passes.

The increase in the entrance fee at the Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site and Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site support projects that benefit visitors and protect park resources. The increased fee revenue will allow the parks to address preservation needs of the homes, which is critical to ensuring the continued enjoyment and long-term preservation of these significant sites.
