Great news for active duty military! The National Park Service has just announced plans to waive admission fees to properties nationwide for active duty military personnel and their dependents.
Who qualifies for the free pass?
All active duty military personnel and dependents with a proper ID (CAC Card or DD Form 1173) can take advantage of this great offer.
Why is this a good deal?
While some parks are free of admission, many of them charge fees ranging from a free-will donation to upwards of $25. Not only is the pass valid at all 397 national parks, it’s good at Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Reclamation sites.
Where can I obtain the free pass?
You can pick up the pass at all Federal recreation sites that charge admission – just show the proper ID (CAC Card or DD Form 1173).
