Ready to hit the trails this November? You’re in luck because this year’s last free entrance day at National Parks just so happens to be coming up. Here’s when and what to know.

On Saturday, November 11th, adventurous individuals can visit any of the nation’s National Parks for free in honor of Veterans Day. According to the National Park Service, there are over 400 National Parks in the US and 3 are in Washington including Olympic, North Cascades, and Mount Rainier.

Other participating sites in Washington State include the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site and the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. It is however, important to keep in mind that the “entrance fee waiver for fee-free days does not cover amenity or user fees for activities such as camping, boat launches, transportation, or special tours.”

So if you’ve been meaning to check out the views at Rainier or are curious about state history be sure to utilize this wonderful opportunity to experience the outdoors for free. After all, there won’t be another free entrance day until January 2024.

Enjoy your free entrance day at Washington’s National Parks!
