Grand Canyon National Park Fee Free weekend

Free Grand Canyon Admission for Presidents Day Weekend

The Grand Canyon National Park will be offering free admission to all visitors during Presidents Day weekend, joining national parks nationwide in a massive celebration honoring past presidents that have fought to preserve the beautiful slices of American wilderness held within our proud nation’s national parks.

Many United States presidents have fought for the protection of the Grand Canyon and other national landmarks everywhere. These formations and historical locations are the home of great American adventures throughout sweeping landscapes, dense wilderness, and roaring rapids. All of these scenic destinations have been preserved thanks to the clout of our nation’s past leaders, fighting tooth and nail to keep these places safe for future generations. Protecting these pristine slices of natural American wilderness has always been an important part of preserving America’s legacy, and everyone who has enjoyed these monumental parks and landmarks has our past leaders to thank.

So let’s celebrate! Our nation’s leaders and environmentalists have managed to keep our national parks and landmarks safe for this long, so it’s the perfect time to go out and enjoy all of those wonderful parks for free. The Grand Canyon will be free, but if you can’t make the trip, don’t pass up all of the other parks that will offer free admission this weekend! Popular national parks include…

  • Great Smoky Mountains National Park
  • Yosemite National Park
  • Olympic National Park
  • Yellowstone National Park
  • Zion National Park

Free admission to the Grand Canyon National Park will begin February 14th and last throughout February 16th, but it should be noted that admission is the only fee that will be waived during this time. If you’re planning on camping, using concessions, or taking a guided tour, all regular fees still apply. Only the entrance fee is waived. Don’t let that discourage you, though, because admission alone gives you access to some of the most breathtaking and memorable views in America, and many of the parks other fees are very affordable.

If you’re planning on making the trip over to the Grand Canyon, the Grand Canyon weather for Presidents Day weekend looks like it’s going to be perfect. Expect temperatures to sit in the low 60s on Saturday and Sunday, but expect a drop into the mid-50s on Monday. There is a zero percent chance of precipitation throughout the weekend, but it will be consistently cloudy beginning on Saturday. Just to be safe, bring clothing appropriate for chillier weather, and be prepared for winter driving conditions on your way to and from the canyon.

Can’t make it this weekend but want to take advantage of free admission? April 18th and 19th will offer free admission in celebration of the park’s opening, and on August 25th, the park will be celebrating the National Park Service’s birthday with free admission. Also keep September 26th and November 11th in mind later this year for two more chances to enter the park for free.
