The National Park Service is waiving entrance fees at all national parks on Saturday, June 9, for National Get Outdoors Day.
The entrance fee waiver does not include other fees such as those charged for camping, reservations, tours and use of concessions services.
All park roads, lodging, and stores are open for the season, as are most of Yellowstone’s campgrounds. Lodging and campground information is available at 307-344-2114; road information at 307-344-2117.
Since Yellowstone is a high elevation park, visitors are reminded to bring sunscreen to protect themselves during the day; and warm clothing for nighttime temperatures that can drop to near freezing.
More information on National Get Outdoors Day can be found online at http://www.nationalgetoutdoorsday.org/
Additional fee free days in 2012 are National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 29, and the Veterans Day weekend, November 10-12.
