SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's national parks and monuments will be open free of charge this weekend. The National Park Service will offer two fee-free weekends, including Saturday through Monday.

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.

More information on the fees and discounts can be found at www.nps.gov/findapark/feefreeparks.htm.

In Utah, the National Park Service manages five national parks, six national monuments, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Golden Spike National Historic Site. Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument are managed by other federal agencies.
