America the Beautiful Passes
Little River Canyon National Preserve does not sell these passes, nor do you need them at this park. For more information on the changes for the Senior Passes click here.
The closest area to purchase the Senior Passes is Chickamauga/Chattanooga National Military Park. Interagency passes, such as the Senior Pass, are available for purchase onsite ONLY at the fee station at Lookout Mountain Battlefield (Point Park), Friday through Monday. On Tuesdays, passes are available intermittently, as this is the day that fee staff uses to handle their accounting and administrative duties. If you are planning to purchase one of these Interagency passes during your visit, please call the Lookout Mountain Battlefield (423-821-7786) ahead of time to ensure the fee station will be open. Daily entrance passes can be purchased at the fee both or at the automated fee machine in the gate at Point Park.
