Do you have a National Parks America the Beautiful Pass?

If you travel to National Parks often, you probably have (or will want) an America the Beautiful Pass. The pass gives you access to every National Park, as well as more than 2,000 federal recreation sites (wildlife refuges, national forests and grasslands and for lands managed by the BLM, Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.) Nice, right?

The annual pass costs $80, but if you’re a current U.S. military member it’s free, and if you’re a senior, 62 and over, the pass costs $80 for a lifetime. You can learn more here.

Do you have an America the Beautiful Pass? Tell us in today’s poll. Thanks!

I’ve had mine for 13 years, 42 parks, some frequently, and so many other sites. The parks are a national treasure and should be treated as such. We spend $in the parks, and encourage other pass holders to donate in the visitor centers.

I am a 100% Disabled veteran and received mine for free…. I use it a lot My wife and I have lived in our RV for 5 years now and we have visited many of our National Parks. We go to the parks that don’t get a lot of visitors…. It’s wonderful 😊

My wife & I purchased ours immediately upon qualifying, but haven’t used it once!! Maybe just having it made the possibility a thing of hope.

Me & my hubby each have the $10 lifetime passes.

I’ve had the Senior Pass since I qualified.

Should be a “No, not yet” answer because that is what I would have used instead of an outright NO!

Got the senior pass when I turned 62, for $10. Went up to $80 the next year. Frankly, that’s still a bargain!

It is a Blessing.

I said no because we both have the $10 lifetime passes, not the annual pass.

The text specifically mentions the senior pass, was obviously meant to be a ‘yes’

Yes, and bought two for each of us (@ $10/ea) before the price went up. 😉

We have two. Some park tours require one for each person or you have to pay. Ours were $10.
