Free Yellowstone Admission Weekends in 2011 Announced

As in past years, the NPS is offering free weekends as a way to encourage interest in National Parks.

An announcement today from the Park Service listed the following free weekends:

  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 15-17)
  • National Park Week (April 16-24)
  • The first day of summer (June 21)
  • National Public Lands Day (September 24)
  • Veterans Day (November 11-13)

“Many people have made resolutions to spend more quality time with loved ones and to get outdoors and unplug in 2011,” said Interior Secretary Ken Salazar in a release. “There’s no better place than a national park to help keep those resolutions. Parks offer superb recreational opportunities, making them perfect places to enjoy our beautiful land, history and culture, and nurture a healthy lifestyle.”

Though nothing was announced, it’s expected concessionaires Xanterra and Delaware North will once again offering deals to visitors during these free days and weekends.
