Exploring the great outdoors is one of the best ways to get away from it all and reconnect with nature. The National Parks Service (NPS) offers a variety of passes that make it easy for you to explore some of the most beautiful and unique places in the United States. Whether you’re looking for a day trip or a longer vacation, an NPS pass can help you make the most of your outdoor adventure.
Why You Should Get an NPS Pass
An NPS pass is a great way to save money on your outdoor adventures. With an NPS pass, you can get free or discounted admission to more than 2,000 federal recreation sites, including national parks, wildlife refuges, and other public lands. You can also get discounts on camping fees and other services at some sites. Plus, with an NPS pass, you’ll be helping to support the conservation efforts of the National Park Service.
Types of NPS Passes
The NPS offers several different types of passes, so you can choose one that fits your needs. The most popular pass is the Annual Pass, which gives you unlimited access to all federal recreation sites for one year from the date of purchase. There are also Senior Passes for U.S. citizens or permanent residents age 62 or older, Access Passes for people with permanent disabilities, Military Passes for active duty military personnel and their dependents, and Volunteer Passes for volunteers who have completed 250 hours or more of volunteer service at federal recreation sites.
How to Get an NPS Pass
Getting an NPS pass is easy. You can purchase passes online at www.npspassport.gov or in person at any federal recreation site that charges entrance fees or amenity fees (such as campgrounds). You can also purchase passes by mail using a form available on the website or by calling 1-888-NPS-PASS (1-888-677-7277).
So if you’re looking for a way to explore some of America’s most beautiful natural areas without breaking the bank, consider getting an NPS pass. With an NPS pass in hand, you’ll be ready to start your outdoor adventure in no time.
