Grand Canyon to offer free entrance fees

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

National Public Lands Day began in 1994 and is intended to encourage shared stewardship of our nation's public lands. This year, NPLD will be celebrated on Sept. 24. Visitors who arrive on the 24th will be allowed to enter the park free of charge. Those who plan to spend time in the park beyond the 24th 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.
