National Parks: Free admission days and senior bargains

Written by on December 22, 2013 in People & Places with 2 Comments

Our favorite RVing destinations are America’s National Parks. There are 59 of them, as well as 350 plus other “units” that make up the entire system, including monuments and seashores and preserves. Most charge admission entrance fees but for 2014, the parks service has announced nine days for which there will be no admission charged.

Here are the free dates:

  • January 20: Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • February 15-17: Presidents Day weekend
  • April 19-20: National Park Week’s opening weekend
  • August 25: National Park Service’s 98th birthday
  • September 27: National Public Lands Day
  • November 11: Veterans Day

But if you are over 62, you can get admission for any park, any time, for $10. It’s a lifetime pass and it is the best $10 you can spend. Just show the pass at the gate and you are in. For those under 62, an annual pass is $80 – itself not a bad deal. Not when you consider all the National Parks system has to offer.

Our favorite National Park is Yellowstone, because of its sheer size and the diversity of wildlife.

What is your favorite national park and why?

    I am 72 years old and get in for free. I fail to understand why anyone should have to pay a cent to see what is theirs. The National Parks should be free to all American Taxpayers.

    Our favorite is Bryce Canyon National Park because of the spectacular colors, the interesting hoodoos and the great hiking. Walking through all the formations was so memorable.
