Visit National Parks For Free August 14-15

Entrance fees will be waived at US national parks on August 14 and 15, as part of a program to encourage people to visit. Utah's 5 national parks are participating in the program, as are most of the state's national monuments and historic sites.

Here is a list of national sites participating in the program. Below is text from the National Park Service statement:

Free Entrance Days In Your National Parks

America’s Best Idea – the national parks – gets even better this year with several fee-free days at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees*.

Mark your calendar for fee-free days this year:

April 17-25, 2010 (National Park Week)
June 5-6, 2010
August 14-15, 2010
September 25, 2010 (Public Lands Day)
November 11, 2010 (Veterans Day)

And to make the fun even more affordable, many national park concessioners are joining the National Park Service in welcoming visitors on this summer’s fee free weekends with the their own special offers.

Here’s a tip – many of your 392 national parks NEVER charge an entrance fee. So start Planning Your Visit!

*Fee waiver includes: entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise.
