The National Park Service Turns 100, but the Gift is All Yours

MainImage3The National Park Service turns 100 years old in 2016 and we want everyone to join the party! Some of the best Fresh Air out there is in our National Parks. So, in honor of their centennial celebration and the launch of our new aerodynamic roof rack system, StreamLine, we hit the road and explored. Now it’s your turn – load up, explore and celebrate our parks’ big birthday.

National parks are America’s Best Idea, and there are 409 available to everyone, every day. The fee-free days provide a great opportunity to visit a new place or an old favorite, especially one of the 127 national parks that normally charge an entrance fee. The others are free all of the time. Plan your visit and enjoy our country’s history and nature.

In order to celebrate turning 100,

all National Parks will be FREE
August 25th – August 28th.

The fee waiver includes entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise.
Fee-free days make parks accessible to more people. However, national parks are always economical, with entrance fees that range from $3 to $30. In addition, any fourth grade student can get a free annual pass through the Every Kid in a Park program, and active duty military and citizens with a permanent disability can also get free passes. For more information about the variety of discounted passes available, please visit the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass page.

After your trip, share a photo with #YakimaNPContest for a chance to win a limited edition Centennial ShowCase cargo box.
