Free Entrance to Olympic National Park
The National Park Service announced today that the public will be invited to experience all national parks, including Olympic National Park, without entrance fees, on four days in 2019.
The 2019 entrance fee-free days are:
- January 21: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
- April 20: First Day of National Park Week
- August 25: National Park Service Birthday
- September 28th:National Public Lands Day
- November 11: Veterans Day
“National parks connect all of us with our country’s amazing nature, culture and history,” said National Park Service Deputy Director Michael T. Reynolds. “The days that we designate as fee free for national parks mark opportunities for the public to participate in service projects, enjoy ranger-led programs, or just spend time with family and friends exploring these diverse and special places. We hope that these fee-free days offer visitors an extra incentive to enjoy their national parks in 2019.”
