Free national park pass for 4th-graders & their families

Got a 4th-grade student in the house?

If so, thanks to the Every Kid Outdoors initiative, that fourth-grader – plus everyone else in the family – can get into any U.S. National Park for FREE.

See wildlife lilke alligators and turtles living in Everglades National Park.

You simply need to download the free pass by clicking here, print it out and show it for entry at all federal grounds and waters. You must have the pass on you to gain entrance.

Perhaps you already have a trip planned for an upcoming weekend or even for your next vacation? Or, you’re thinking of putting together a camping trip – National Park campgrounds are usually pretty inexpensive anyway, but FREE is always better, especially if you want to stay a few nights.

Finding out where to use your FREE National Parks Admission Pass is easy:

  • Search for all the participating locations here.
  • Simply select one of the four options

And if you happen to be a 4th-grade teacher, you can print out a pass for each of your students.

You can find all of the rules for the FREE National Parks Admission Pass here.
