All the Days You Can Visit National Parks for Free in 2024

In 2024, plan your outdoor adventures strategically by visiting sites participating in the National Park Service's six fee-free days. Curious about when you can explore national parks for free in 2024? Here are the dates to mark in your calendar:


  • Jan. 15 (Monday): Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

  • April 20 (Saturday): First day of National Park Week

  • June 19 (Wednesday): Juneteenth

  • Aug. 4 (Sunday): Great American Outdoors Day

  • Sep. 28 (Saturday): National Public Lands Day

  • Nov. 11 (Monday): Veterans Day



While these fee-free days offer a fantastic opportunity to experience the beauty of national parks, be aware that some parks may still require timed entry or vehicle reservations. Additionally, services like camping, special tours, transportation, and boat rides may come with associated fees.


If you're planning your trip around one of these days, ensure a smooth experience by checking ticket requirements and making necessary reservations well in advance, as popular parks may be more crowded.


Can't make it on these specific holidays? Don't worry; you may still qualify for free or reduced-fee entry. Veterans, active-duty military (and their dependents), individuals with disabilities, and fourth-grade students are eligible for free America the Beautiful annual passes, granting access to every national park. For those aged 62 and older, an annual America the Beautiful pass is available for $20, or you can opt for a lifetime pass at $80.
