In honor of Veterans Day, federal recreational lands in Utah will not charge entrance fees on Tuesday, Nov 11. That includes Utah's Mighty 5 national parks plus our National Monuments and National Recreation Areas. Visitors may still have to pay fees for camping and special activities..

The Park Service has several days every year when entrance fees are waived. The free entrance days include:
  • Martin Luther King Jr Day in January
  • Presidents Day Weekend in February
  • National Parks Week in April
  • National Park Service birthday in August
  • National Public Lands Day in September
  • Veterans Day in November
The Park Service provided this additional information:

Only 133 of our country's 401 national parks usually charge an entrance fee. So start Planning Your Visit!

If you're planning a trip that includes multiple national parks, you might consider the $80 annual pass that provides entrance to all national parks, national wildlife refuges, national forests, and many other Federal lands--more than 2,000 in all. The America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass is offered free to all active duty military members and their dependents. Information on these and other pass options is available online.
