Entrance Fees Suspended

As of April 1, 2018, Pipestone National Monument has suspended entry fees. Since entry fees are not being collected, we are unable to sell passes, such as the Senior or Anual passes. We can continue to provide to the public Free passes, such as the Access and Military. Because we are not collecting entrance fees, future park projects will rely heavily on public donations. Please support the park and consider donating whenever possible.


National Park Service Renews Every Kid in a Park Pass

Pipestone National Monument is proud to be part of the Every Kid in a Park program as part of President Obama's commitment to protect our nation's unique outdoor spaces and ensure that every American has the opportunity to visit and enjoy them.

As of September 1, fourth graders nationwide can visit the new Every Kid in a Park website to obtain a pass that provides free access to students and their families to all federally managed lands and waters–including national parks, forests and wildlife refuges. The pass is valid through August 31, 2018 and grants free entry for fourth graders and three accompanying adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks) at more than 2,000 federally-managed sites.
