Have you explored many of the parks? Do you plan to anytime soon? Did you know that the National Parks offer several Fee-Free days? We've already missed the first fee free days for 2012 back in January, but in just under two weeks, during National Park Week, you can once again visit the parks that normally charge an entrance fee for free.
Mark your calendar for these fee-free dates in 2012:
Martin Luther King Jr. weekend
National Park Week
Get Outdoors Day
National Public Lands Day
Veterans Day weekend
Here's a tip - many of your 397 national parks NEVER charge an entrance fee."
You can check out their Free Entrance Days page for more details.
As I was exploring the site, I learned two things. You can buy an annual pass for $80, or if you are over 62 and a US Citizen/Permanent Resident, you can buy a Senior Pass for $10. The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass Series will provide you access to over 2000 National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands. The annual pass, as you might guess, is good for one year. The Senior Pass is good for your lifetime.
