NPS Fee-Free Days in April

Again this year the National Park Service will offer fee-free days, allowing visitors to
check out the nation’s 391 national parks without paying an admission fee. The first
fee-free days are scheduled for April 17-25, National Parks Week 2010.
Information on additional fee-free periods will be released later this spring. Many park
partners, including tour operators, hotels, restaurants and gift shops, plan to enhance the
fee-free periods by providing discounts and special promotions to sweeten the deal. Fees
for activities such as camping, tours, or concessions are not affected by the entrance fee
waiver. There are 147 parks that normally charge entrance fees ranging from $3 to $25, and
244 national parks never charge entrance fees. For more about national parks, visit
