The National Park Service turns 100 years old in 2016 and wants everyone to celebrate. All national parks will waive their entrance fees on 16 special days in 2016 starting with Martin Luther King Jr Day on January 18th. Visit FindYourPark.com for a list of Centennial special events across the country and to learn how to discover, explore, recreate, be inspired, or simply have fun in national parks.

There are also a variety of free or discounted passes available for senior citizens, current military members, fourth grade students, and disabled citizens.
