Grand Canyon waives fees for Veterans Day

GRAND CANYON - Grand Canyon National Park will be joining national parks across the country in celebrating Veterans Day with fee free entry into the park.

This year, the fee free designation will apply to the entire Veteran's Day weekend, Nov. 11 - 13. Visitors who arrive on Nov. 11, 12 or 13 will be allowed to enter the park free of charge. Those who plan to spend time in the park beyond Nov. 13 will need to pay the regular entrance fee for the remainder of their stay.

Park visitors are reminded that the fee-free designation applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours, or use of concessions. Park entrance stations will have Interagency Senior and Annual Passes available for those who wish to purchase them.
