National Park Service announces fee-free days for 2022

The National Park Service offers entrance fee-free days every year, and 2022 is no exception.

The entrance-free dates for 2022 are:

  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day - Monday, January 17
  • First Day of National Park Week - Saturday, April 16
  • Great American Outdoors Act Anniversary  - Thursday, August 4
  • National Public Lands Day - Saturday, September 24
  • Veterans Day  - Friday, November 11

“Whether on an entrance fee-free day or throughout the year, we encourage everyone to discover their national parks and the benefits that come from spending time outdoors,” said National Park Service Director Chuck Sams. “National parks are for everyone and we are committed to increasing access and providing opportunities for all to experience the sense of wonder, awe and refreshment that comes with a visit to these treasured landscapes and sites.”

Activities within the parks (camping, boat launching, special tours, etc.) may still incur standard fees; the entrance fee waiver is only for … well, the entrance fee.

Within the state of California, there are 28 National Parks, 10 Wild & Scenic Rivers, and National Recreation Areas all managed by the National Park Service (including the Mojave National Preserve and Death Valley National Park - two GREAT places with AWESOME trails, and home to the Cal4Wheel Death Valley Experience!) #nationalparkservice #cal4wheel #dve2022 #deathvalleyexperience
