Enjoy your "free" time in the national parks. To celebrate the stunning national parks we have, the National Park Service offers free days periodically at 120 national parks and monuments, such as Olympic, Rocky Mountain, Yellowstone, Yosemite and Grand Canyon, that normally charge an entrance fee. The other parks are free all of the time.

Plan your visit and enjoy our country’s history and nature.
