"Everyone should have the chance to explore and enjoy the very special places our National Park system protects," she said in a statement.

The park normally charges a $35 entrance fee per car or person. On the no-cost days, other costs will still apply, including those for activities such as camping, boat launches, transportation, or special tours.

Outside of the special days, free or discounted passes are available for senior citizens, current members of the military, families of fourth grade students, and disabled citizens. For more information, visit www.nps.gov/brca or call the park's information line at (435) 834-5322
