Advanced tickets for children or interagency pass holders must be purchased on the recreation.gov website by selecting “Child” or “Interagency Pass” instead of “Adult” from the drop down menu.

Checking in Before Your Tour

Upon arrival at Sagamore Hill, check in with the park ranger at the outdoor contact station adjacent to the parking lot. Parties will have to provide the name on their reservation and will be asked to show an email confirmation from recreation.gov. Parties will be given colored metal tabs that will serve as tickets for their tour and these tabs will be checked at the Roosevelt Home by the tour guide. Guides will not admit any parties without tabs into the Roosevelt Home. Please Note: Check-in is required at least 30 minutes prior to the time of your reservation.

Checking in During Inclement Weather

During inclement weather, tour goers should head directly to the Roosevelt Home. Follow signs from the parking lot and walk around the home to reach the front door. Please have a confirmation from Recreation.gov available to show your tour guide. The outdoor portion of the tour will take place under a covered porch.
