National Park Service sites across the country that charge fees for entry will waive the entrance fees during the weekends of Nov. 10-12 and Jan. 19-21.
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.
