Glacier Waives Entry Fee August 14 & 15

from NPS Glacier National Park:

WEST GLACIER, MONT. – Glacier National Park officials announced that the park will waive entrance fees on August 14 and 15 along with all National Park Service sites to encourage all Americans to visit our national parks.

“This fee-free weekend provides an opportunity for individuals and families alike to take an affordable vacation or to explore a nearby park they have never visited before,” Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazarsaid. “I encourage everyone to take advantage of the free admission to visit not only our greatest natural wonders but also our nation’s historic and cultural icons.”

There are 392 national parks located across the country in 49 states. The entrance fees are being waived at the 146 sites which usually charge for admission. There are 246 other parks that do not have entrance fees so you can plan a free visit year-round. A complete list by park or state is available at

The fee free waiver does not include other fees for camping, reservations, tours and use of concessions. The next fee free days are September 25 (Public Lands Day) and November 11 (Veterans Day).
