The National Park Service will waive fees for entry to all sites that charge entrance fees to encourage all Americans to visit our national parks. Devils Tower National Monument Superintendent Dorothy FireCloud invites the public to visit America’s First National Monument and help celebrate the monument’s 105th anniversary which also falls on September 24. Refreshment will be served at the Visitor Center. In addition to viewing the Tower, visitors are invited to explore more than seven miles of hiking trails, sit and watch the prairie dogs, or look for the plentiful deer, turkeys and the beginnings of fall colors. The Visitor Center will be open 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. through the end of September. The Visitor Center hours will change to 9 a.m.-4 p.m. daily beginning October 1.
The entrance fees being waived at 146 National Park Service sites usually range from $3 to $25. There are 246 other parks that do not have entrance fees. The fee-free waiver does not include other fees collected in advance or by contractors—such as fees charged for camping, reservations, tours and use of concessions.
The National Park Service website provides information to help the public plan their park adventures at www.nps.gov.
