The America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Pass is your ticket to recreation opportunities on more than 2,000 national parks and other public lands locations. The pass provides you access to public lands managed by six federal agencies: the National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Each pass covers entrance fees along with standard amenity and day use fees for up to four adults, including the pass holder. Children age 15 or under are always admitted free.
There are six different passes that give you access to public lands:
One hundred percent of the revenue generated from sales of the America the Beautiful public lands pass directly benefits the parks, and at least 80 percent stays at the park where the pass was purchased. Fees help support critical investments in improving and enhancing federal recreation sites nationwide.
You can obtain your pass from federal recreation sites that charge entrance or amenity fees, online (and an extra $10 processing fee will be added to the price) or select third party vendors.
Whether you’re a hiker, a boater, a bird watcher, an angler or a photographer, the public lands pass provides a convenient and inexpensive way to enjoy the thousands of recreation opportunities available on our nation’s public lands. Get out and explore America.
