All of the fee-charging National Park Service units will waive entrance fees on the following days in 2023:
National Park Service Fee-free days for 2023:

- Thursday, August 4 – Great American Outdoors Day
- Saturday, September 23 – National Public Lands Day

For those with one of the many National Park passes, we generally recommend you avoid the fee-free days, as they can be very busy, especially in popular parks.
Annual passes to all public lands are $80 per year for a carload of 4 adults. Lifetime passes are $80 for seniors and free passes are offered for 4th graders, veterans, and those living with permanent disabilities. To see which pass you might qualify for check out the video below:
