The National Park Service has released its free entrance days for 2022 – and visitors could save up to $35 per vehicle at any of the country’s national parks.
On five days in 2022, all National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission for everyone – and with more than 400 parks available, we can’t wait to include the freebie in our staycation plans this year.
