Fee Free Day State and National Park

June 19

The U.P. is home to: Michigan's only national park — Isle Royale National Park. One of the least visited national parks in the country, it is also one of the most revisited and among National Geographic's “Best of the World” list for 2021.

Come experience the national parks! All National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone (other fees may apply). Mark your calendar for these entrance fee-free dates:

Each April, during the presidentially proclaimed National Park Week, the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation join together to celebrate national parks and programs across the country and encourage everyone to discover the nation’s diverse natural and cultural heritage. A week full of fun activities, the first day of National Park Week is a fee-free day, the perfect opportunity to explore new parks and discover the wonder our national parks hold.

Even after the fee-free fun is done, National Park Week is a great reminder of all the ways you can show our parks some love year-round. Share your favorite picture from a park visit, use special Instagram stickers on your social media posts, become a Junior Ranger, escape the everyday by tuning into PARKTRACKS, an audio experience featuring the sounds of our national parks, or donate to support our parks and the programs that continue to inspire future park champions.
