National Parks Senior Pass price hike on August 28th
We warned you earlier this year and now the official date has been set. On August 28, 2017, the Lifetime US National Parks Senior Pass will go from $10 to $80!
Are you or do you know a US Citizen who is 62 years or older? Then they’re eligible to purchase a US National Parks senior pass for only $10. The pass can be purchased online for $20 or at one of the many site locations around the United States for only $10. The typical annual pass costs $80, and is only good for one year.
A $10 lifetime pass provides access to more than 2,000 recreation sites (including Yosemite pictured above) managed by five US Federal agencies, with up to 100% of the proceeds being used to improve and enhance visitor recreation services. The senior pass admits the passholder plus three adults per vehicle (children under 16 are always free). Only the vehicle with the passholder will be covered.
Thrifty Tip: The Senior Pass may provide a 50% discount on some amenity fees charged for facilities and services such as camping, swimming, boat launch, and specialized interpretive services.
This is an unbelievable bargain and goes towards supporting and protecting our beautiful national parks. Gas is cheap and traveling to your nearest national park is a solid low cost option for your next trip. Buy it now before August 28th!
