National Park Service Announces Fee Free Days For 2013
Arches National Park provided this news release, announcing it will join other National Park Service properties and not charge entrance fees on certain dates in 2013.
If you are looking for a deal, plan to visit our parks on those days. (I choose to purchase an annual pass, so I get into any park on any date for one price. If you visit parks more than 3 times in a year, the annual pass is a good investment. Note, the annual National Parks Pass and the free entrance days do not apply to Utah State Parks.)
National Parks Fee Free Days Announced for 2013
The Southeast Utah Group of the National Park Service (Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Hovenweep and Natural Bridges National Monuments) is joining all national parks across the country in waiving entrance fees several days in 2013 as a way to encourage people to get outdoors and spend time with their friends and family in the national parks this year.
Up-coming fee free days this year will be:
- Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (January 21)
- National Park Week (April 22-26)
- National Park Service Birthday (August 26)
- National Public Lands Day (September 28)
- Veterans Day weekend (November 9-11)
Park visitors are reminded that the fee free designation applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours or other special uses. Park entrance stations will have Interagency Senior and Annual Passes available for those who wish to purchase them.
