This year, the US National Park Service allows free visits to their sites on certain days of the year.  The 2020 dates have been released, and the first day is this month!

Free National Park Dates 2020

The National Park Service is waiving entry fees on the following five dates this year:

On the days noted above, entrance fees will be waived to all National Park Service locations.  The parks listed here usually do charge fees, and those will be waived on the five dates.  For example, Crater Lake National Park in Oregon is waiving fees on these days.  Check out Ian’s tips for Crater Lake!  You’ll still have to pay for other fees and any activity fees (camping, boat rentals, etc.).  Remember, not all parks charge entrance fees though, so feel free to swing by the National Park closest to you whenever you can!

Since the dates are spread throughout the year, you have some good chances to see the National Parks.  Hopefully at least one of the days will work for you.  When you’re planning your trip, don’t forget that great minds think alike!  If you’re going on the free days, others will too, so it might be a busy day at the Park.  I’ll likely plan a roadtrip up to Acadia National Park in Maine, the closest large National Park to us here in Boston.

If you have a kid in 4th grade, you can also qualify for the Every Kid in a Park pass for the year.  We used one of these last year at Yellowstone National Park, and our whole car was free!

Where will you go with these free National Park dates in 2020??
