Don’t forget: This weekend the National Park Service will waive entry fees.

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced that the National
Park Service will waive entrance fees on August 14 and 15 to encourage
all Americans to visit our national parks.

“This fee-free weekend provides an opportunity for individuals and
families alike to take an affordable vacation or to explore a nearby
park they have never visited before,” Salazar said. “I encourage
everyone to take advantage of the free admission to visit not only our
greatest natural wonders but also our nation’s historic and cultural
icons.”

There are 392 national parks located across the country in 49
states, many of which will hold free events on August 14 and 15. A
complete list by park or state is available at www.nps.gov.

The entrance fees being waived at the 146 sites usually charge for
admission range from $3 to $25. There are 246 other parks that do not
have entrance fees so you can plan a free visit year-round. The fee free
waiver does not include other fees collected in advance or by
contractors—such as fees charged for camping, reservations, tours and
use of concessions.
