I love parks. Local parks, state parks, national parks. I’m not picky. I just like having places to hike, explore, and relax that aren’t filled with traffic & smog.

Want to check out a few national parks on the cheap? Pick a fee-free weekend to go, and you won’t need to pay entrance fees, commercial tour fees, or transportation entrance fees to visit more than 100 national parks.

2012’s first fee-free days will take place Martin Luther King, Jr., weekend, January 14-16.

Can’t make it? Here’s the schedule for the rest of 2012’s fee-free days:

  • April 21-29: National Park Week
  • June 9: Get Outdoors Day
  • September 29: National Public Lands Day
  • November 10-12: Veterans Day Weekend

Not all national parks charge a fee. For instance, at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park in GA, we can hike up & around the mountain and park for free year-round. To make the most of the deal, plan to spend the fee-free weekends at the 100+ national parks that typically charge a fee.
