Rocky Mountain National Park Free Days
Rocky Mountain National Park will be honoring our Veterans beginning Saturday, November 9 through Monday, November 11, 2013, with free admission to all park visitors.
Waiving entrance fees to all public lands on Veteran’s Day and Veteran’s Day weekend is one way to show appreciation for the millions of men and women who fight to keep America’s public lands accessible to all Americans.
Superintendent Vaughn Baker adds, “This will be a great weekend to enjoy Rocky with Highway 36 now re-opened and the weather forecast looking good. If visitors missed experiencing the park in the fall during the floods or the government shutdown, this weekend will be a good time to reconnect with the park and the communities of Estes Park and Grand Lake.”
The National Park Service also provides active duty members of the military and their dependents with an annual national park pass, an $80 value, at no charge. Permanently disabled veterans can receive a free lifetime pass to all parks. The passes provide entrance to all national parks, national wildlife refuges, national forests, and many other Federal lands – more than 2,000 in all. The passes can be acquired at Rocky Mountain National Park or any park that charges an entrance fee. Information about all national park passes is available at www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm
This weekend’s fee waiver is good for fees associated with park entrance. The fee waiver does not include user fees such as camping or activities within the park.
