SALT LAKE CITY — National parks and monuments in Utah and across the country will waive entrance fees several days in 2014.
The park service offers fee-free days as a way to encourage people to get outdoors and spend time with their friends and family in the national parks.
Upcoming fee-free days are Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 20; Presidents Day weekend, Feb. 15-17; the first weekend of National Park Week, April 19-20; National Park Service birthday, Aug. 25; National Public Lands Day, Sept. 27; and Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
Park visitors are reminded that the fee-free designation applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours or other special uses. Park entrance stations will have interagency senior and annual passes available for those who wish to purchase them.
