Visit Any National Park for Free This Veterans' Day

Josh Ocampo Nov 09, 2019 at 01:45. 0 comments

This coming Monday, November 11, more than 400 National Park Service sites will offer free admission in recognition of Veterans’ Day and as one of five Free Entrance days each year; this includes free access to parks like Yosemite, Zion, and the Grand Canyon National Parks.

While entrance to some parks is already free, you might expect to pay per person or vehicle (and sometimes both) for entrance to many other National Park sites. Entrance to Yellowstone National Park, for instance, costs $20 per person and $35 for parking your vehicle—so if you don’t already have plans for the holiday, now’s the time.

To see the full list of participating parks, you can visit the National Park Service’s website or use its search locator to find a park near you, if you’re unsure of where to start; you can search by state, activity, and interest. Their website also has vital planning tips on how to minimize your impact on the environment, too. (And in case you need it, h ere’s how to Instagram National Parks without being a dick.)
