National Park Service (NPS) 2018 Park Admission Fees

National Park Service (NPS) 2018 Park Admission Fees

When deciding whether to purchase the various Annual Passes to cover admission fees, it is important to consider the parks around that you are likely to visit. While the majority of the 417 National Park sites do not charge a park admission fee (fees were enacted with the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act and authorized by Congress in December 2004), there are few combined sites that list these fees.

Until now.

This list was compiled and updated February, 2017 from original work in 2011 by Jeffrey over at National Parks Blog. Thanks again, Jeffrey!

All the details of HOW we stay at places like this 😍⤵️

We’ve been @harvesthosts members for SIX years and it has been so fun to explore great local businesses all across North America. We’ve stayed at breweries, wineries, farms (who remembers the alpacas from a few weeks ago?) and museums across the US & Canada and it has made for some great memories. 

Our recent stay at The Winery at Sunshine Ridge blew us away. 😯🫶 Waterfront, live music, beer AND wine, dog-friendly… it checked all the boxes. We had a great night’s sleep before continuing on our travels. 💤🚐💨

Harvest Hosts has multiple plan options to choose from. You can also upgrade from the Classic Plan offering winery, brewery, farm, and attraction host locations to add access to golf course hosts, community hosts, or access all 9000+ host locations!

Best overnight stay ever!? 😍🦙

During our time in Bowling Green, Kentucky, we put our @harvesthosts membership to good use with a stay at Alive N' Fuzzy Alpaca Farm! 

We helped bring all the alpacas up to the barn for the evening and even got to take some on a walk. Just be careful... they spit! (ask Howard, he knows 🤣)

The farm is home to dozens of alpacas, gander geese, a retired mule, Peaches the dog, chickens and one llama! It was one of our favorite stays ever and very convenient to all the main attractions in Bowling Green! 🙌🥰🦙
