Most US National Parks offer at least some accessible trails, overlooks and lodging options. And the good news is, there’s no admission charge to these national treasures, for disabled visitors who have an America the Beautiful Access Pass.
Formerly known as the Golden Access Passport, this lifetime pass is good for free admission to all national parks, monuments, historic sites, recreation areas and wildlife refuges. Pass holders also receive a 50% discount on campsites, boat launch fees and special interpretive services. The pass is good for the pass-holder, as well as 3 accompanying adults, so it can really add up to a lot of savings.
There’s no charge for the America the Beautiful Access Pass; but it can only be obtained at National Park entrance stations. Proof of disability, such as a doctor’s note or a SSDI eligibility letter, is required.
So, make plans to get your America the Beautiful Access Pass on your next visit to a national park.
Your wallet will thank you!
