UNITED STATES – Heads up if you’re looking for something to do next weekend; all national park entrance fees are waived on April 20 to start National Park Week.

Every National Park across the United States will be free to enter on that Saturday, April 20. This does not cover the cost of other amenities like camping, permits, boat launches, etc, but you won’t have to pay to get in!

The rest of National Park Week, ranging form April 21 to April 28, features a series of themed days to celebrate everything the National Park Service has done for preservation in this country. April 21 is focused on volunteering, encouraging individuals to get out there and participate in a single day or long term volunteering event.

Continuing through the week has days like Earth Day on April 22 (duh!), Workforce Wednesday on April 24, Junior Ranger Day on April 27, and Arts in Parks on April 28. It’s a week of fun and celebration in the greatest parks this country has to offer. You can learn more about each themed day right here.

April 20 is the second of six free entrance days at the National Parks throughout the year. The first was on January 15, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday. Other free entrance days include June 19 (in honor of Juneteenth National Independence Day), August 4 (to celebrate the anniversary of the Great American Outdoors Act), September 28 (celebrating National Public Lands Day), and November 11 (for Veterans Day).
