Entrance Fee Free National Park Days
Are you someone that likes to visit National Parks? They really can be such beautiful places to visit. Did you know that every year they have entrance fee free National Park days?
Some parks are free all the time, however, some charge a fee to get in. While paying the fees when visiting helps pay for upkeep and care of the parks, it is nice to also enjoy free days. Some of the parks are so large, you could never get to see and enjoy the whole thing in a day so it is nice to be able to visit it a few times.
The free days only mean it is free to get in. If you will be camping or doing some other activity that you normally have to pay to do, you would still have to pay those fees.
We have visited a handful of them over the years and still have a lot more on our list to visit. Some of the ones that we have visited include Blue Ridge Parkway, Shenandoah National Park (aka Skyline Drive), Harpers Ferry, Appalachian Trail, Cape Hatteras and Wright Brothers to name a few.
Below is the list of this years free days that I found on the NPS site.
The Fee Free National Park Days For 2019 Are:
- January 21, 2019: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
