To commemorate Veterans Day, the National Park Service is offering free admission at all park units Saturday, November 9 through Monday, November 11. Entrance fees will be waived at Theodore Roosevelt National Park, giving visitors one last fee-free opportunity to enjoy spectacular badlands scenery before winter.
“It is important to remember our veterans, including Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, and what they have done for our country,” said Superintendent Valerie Naylor. “Spending a single day or an entire weekend enjoying our national parks is a wonderful way to honor our veterans and celebrate our national heritage.”
The North and South Unit Visitor Centers will be open for business. The South Unit Visitor Center will be open 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. MST and the North Unit Visitor Center will be open 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CST.
The other two national park units in North Dakota – Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site near Williston and Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site near Stanton – are among the more than 200 national parks that never charge entrance fees.
Information on all 401 national park units is available at www.nps.gov.
