The National Park Service announced it is waiving entrance fees for all parks on certain days of the year.
The free admission is designed to encourage Americans to venture out and explore the country’s 63 National Parks and 360 designated sites.
Entrance fees will be waived on the following dates in 2023:
- Jan. 16 – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
- April 12 – First day of National Park Week
- Aug. 4 – Anniversary of the Great American Outdoors Act
- Sept. 23 – National Public Lands Day
- Nov. 11 – Veterans Day
Rangers said the waiver of the fee does not cover the cost of amenities or activities at the recreational sites.
