National Park Service Freebie Days Announced for 2011

Posted by Spalding Hurst

January 6, 2011

The National Park Service announced its 2011 schedule of entrance-fee-free days Tuesday:

  • Jan. 15-17 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday weekend)
  • April 16-24 (National Park Week)
  • June 21 (first day of summer)
  • Sept. 24 (Public Lands Day)
  • Nov. 11-13 (Veterans Day weekend)

Parks that ordinarily change entrance fees will wave visitors through their gates on the dates above. Just keep in mind: While entrance fees are waived on the dates mentioned, other fees (such as camping, tours, concession, reservations) remain in place.

After offering 3 fee-free summer weekends in 2009 and 2 last year, June 21 is the lone summer freebie on the 2011 schedule. Still, any no-entrance-fee day is a nice treat.
