A new federal interagency pass “America the Beautiful — National Parks and Federal
Recreational Lands Pass” combines passes from five federal agencies into one. The new pass
is for National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, the
Bureau of Reclamation, and U.S. Forest Service locations that currently have fees. The new
program replaces the Golden Eagle, Golden Age, and the Golden Access Passports, as well as
the National Parks Pass. Existing passes will remain valid until they expire. The four
different passes in the new program are as follows:

  • A new annual interagency pass costing $80. For visitors to multiple federal sites,
    the pass offers unlimited coverage of entrance and standard amenity recreation fees for
    typically a year.
  • A $10 lifetime senior pass for U.S. citizens 62 or over;
  • A free lifetime access pass for citizens with permanent disabilities;
  • A new, free annual volunteer pass for volunteers with 500 hours of service.
  • The new pass is valid at vehicle entry sites for all
    occupants in a single, non-commercial vehicle. At walk-up sites, the pass covers the
    pass-holder and three adults (total of four adults). There is no charge for children
    under 16. For more information, visit target="_blank">store.usgs.gov/pass or call 1-888-275-8747. The annual pass is
    available for sale through the target="_blank">USGS store and through the government’s federal lands recreation
    Web portal at target="_blank">www.recreation.gov.
