Fee free weekend at Grand Canyon Park

Grand Canyon National Park will be celebrating the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday with a fee free weekend.

Entrance fees will be waived for all visitors to Grand Canyon National Park Jan. 14 to Jan. 16. Visitors arriving in the park on any one of those three days will be allowed to enter free of charge. Those who plan to spend time in the park beyond the 16th will need to pay the regular entrance fee for the remainder of their stay.

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.

Park visitors are reminded that Grand Canyon's South Rim sits at approximately 7,000 feet and that winter weather and driving conditions are always a possibility during the month of January.
