You have two different days to enjoy our nation’s parks for free this year.

US National Parks are Free on These Days in 2023

You can enjoy any of our national parks for free when the National Park Service waives admission during four different days this year.

A program called all fourth-graders and their families free entrance to national parks just by filling out a diary of the things they’d like to do during their park visits and printing out a pass to present at park entrances.
