Veterans Day is Monday, Nov. 11, and to honor those who have served their country, entry fees are being waived for everyone (not just vets) at national parks and forests, and at some state parks.

Admission will be free for a wide range of outdoor settings, from secluded beaches and mountain meadows to internationally known wilderness landmarks like Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon.

Reservation, camping, tours and other fees may still apply, but there will be no day-use admission charges Saturday, Nov. 9 through Monday, Nov. 11 at 401 US national parks or on the more than 150,000 miles of trails and more than 10,000 recreation sites managed by the U.S. Forest Service.

Free admission over the holiday weekend is simply one more incentive to get out and enjoy our country's natural wonders, both great and small.
