Here’s How to Get Into U.S. National Parks Free in April

April is a great month to get out and visit one of the U.S.’s incredible national parks. Why? Because it’s springtime, for one, but also because April 20-28, 2024 is National Park Week, and on April 20, you can get in for free simply by showing up.

The National Park Service (NPS) says its parks and partners will be hosting events and activities for nine days straight to celebrate National Park Week.
