Are you thinking of visiting a national park sometime in 2020? The National Park Service has announced the dates of the annual National Park Free Entrance Days. These five days just might make the perfect opportunity, and excuse, to visit a national park.

In 2020 the Free Entrance Days will come around on these dates:

  • January 20 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day)
  • April 18 (first day of National Park Week)
  • August 25 (National Park Service’s Birthday)
  • September 26 (National Public Lands Day)
  • November 11 (Veterans Day)

There are over 400 national park units throughout the United States and territories, and just a little over 100 of those units charge an admission fee ranging from $5 to $35. If you’re keen to visit the national parks more often than just these free days each year consider purchasing an America the Beautiful Pass for just $80; the pass allows free entry to all NPS units throughout the year.
