National Park Week

Looking for something fun, free, and fantastic to do with family and friends?  Head out to America’s national parks where millions of stars light up the dark night sky, deer and antelope (and a few other critters!) play on the wide open range, and history is an unbelievable experience, not an exam.

And the best news? During National Park Week, April 21-29, ALL 397 of your national parks offer free admission, all week long!

During National Park Week (April 21-29), all national parks offer free admission. Whether you spend a few hours at a park near you, or take a few days to explore a park further from your home, enjoy America’s great outdoors!  The Gulf Islands National Seashore in Navarre.  The National Park Service is proud to once again join with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to present National Park Week.

You can plan your visit by what you want to do, or where you want to go …or you can browse our event calendar and check out the special programs offered that week. April 21 is Volunteer Day, so if you want to roll up your sleeves and pitch in with a project, look for a park where you can help out. On April 28, National Junior Ranger Day, parks will invite young visitors to “explore, learn, protect” and be sworn in as Junior Rangers.

A bunch of our park partners and concessioners are also providing discounts to make your visit even more enjoyable.

Also, don’t forget to check out There you can share your national park photos, videos, and tips. While you’re there, learn all about the ways you can help support your national parks all year round. We hope you’ll picture yourself in a national park during National Park Week!

PS: If you can’t come in April, how about June 9? That’s the next day we waive entrance fees, this time to celebrate Get Outdoors Day.
