Free National Park Admission This Weekend

nation parks

This weekend (4/18-4/19), visit a nearby National Park for free as part of their Fee-Free Weekend Program. Details HERE.

The National Parks have been the hands-down favorite part of our roadschooling trip. The Jr Ranger Program, available at most locations, is a free educational program that includes a badge and/or patch for kids who complete it. It’s meant for the kids, but I learn a lot every time!


The park rangers are always very helpful and enthusiastic with the kids.


There is even a Jr Ranger oath at the end! As you can see from the top pic, we are on our way to having quite a collection of badges.

If you are a frequent traveler, I recommend purchasing the National Park Pass for $80/year. It allows you free admission to over 2,000 federal recreation sites. That’s what we have, and it has been one of the best investments of the entire trip!
