In celebration of enactment of the Great American Outdoors Act, entrance fees are waived today (Aug 5, 2020) at all national parks and monuments.

In future years, every August 4 will be a free entrance day to celebrate the signing of this landmark legislation, joining the other scheduled entrance fee-free days which commemorate or celebrate significant dates.
