Are you an Active Duty Military Member (Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, activated National Guard & Reserves)? If so, you are eligible to receive a FREE Annual Pass to National Parks (value: $80). Simply show your military ID at any National Park or Wildlife Refuge that charges an entrance fee. Family members can also receive their own pass, even if the service member is deployed or traveling separately!
The Annual Park Pass is good for a full year and will get you access to National Park Service Parks, US Fish & Wildlife Service Lands, Bureau of Reclamation Lands, Bureau of Land Management Lands & USDA Forest Service Locations. At sites that charge per vehicle, the pass will get the owner and any accompanying passengers in a private non-commercial vehicle in for free. At sites that charge per person, the pass will get the owner and up to three accompanying adults age 16 and older in for free. There are no entry fees for children 15 and under.
Unfortunately, this offer is only for Active Duty Military. However, if you are a veteran or retiree, you may be eligible for discounted annual passes.
Please visit USGS for more information.
