2023 Free National Park Days For Road Trips From Magic Valley
The National Park Service has announced several free admission days coming up in the next seven months for those planning road trips from southern Idaho. Annually, an average of close to 300 million people visit national parks in the United States, and 2023 is expected to be no different.
The National Park Service has already executed one free admission day in 2023. January 16 (Martin Luther King Jr. Day) was the first of five opportunities to visit U.S. national parks free of entrance fees in 2023, and the next day to enjoy this perk is coming up very soon.
On average, parks charge $30 per vehicle to enter, according to online data. Visitors can order an annual pass for $80 to avoid having to pay at most U.S. national parks, which is what our family has been doing for the past several years. It can help save a lot of money for park enthusiasts.
Two of the most popular destinations that are easy enough drives from southern Idaho are Yellowstone National Park (Idaho, Wyoming, Montana) and Arches National Park in Utah. Both parks are just a few hour's drive and are less than 450 miles from Twin Falls.
Here are the upcoming free admission days to U.S. national parks for the remainder of 2023:
National Park Week Celebration - Saturday, April 22 - Sunday, April 23
Great American Outdoors Day - August 4
National Public Lands Day - September 23
Veterans Day - November 11
Safe travels on your park road trips in 2023 from southern Idaho. Have fun!
