The National Park Service (NPS) turns 97 on Sunday, August 25th. To celebrate, admission to Yellowstone and all national parks are free that day; however, camping and other fees will not be waived.
The NPS is waiving entrance fees on 11 days in 2013 as a way to encourage people to get outdoors and enjoy the remarkable landscapes and historical and cultural sites national parks have to offer.
Other fee free dates still to come this year are National Public Lands Day on September 28th, and November 9th to 11th, which is the Veteran's Day holiday weekend.
A seven-day pass to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks is normally $25 for a private, non-commercial vehicle.
