Fee-Free Weekends Offered at Glacier National Park This Summer

By Beacon Staff

Visiting national parks can get pricey. And in a down economy a vacation to somewhere like Glacier National Park is one of the first notches to go when tightening your financial belt.

Fortunately, the National Park Service gets this, and has created a program to encourage visits.

This summer, Glacier National Park will offer three “Fee Free” weekends to the public. The park will waive entrance fees during the weekends of June 20-21, July 18-19, and August 15-16, 2009. These fee-free weekends will be in addition to other fee-free days on September 26, National Public Lands Day, and November 11, Veterans Day.

A separate “Fee Free” day in conjunction with the park’s Centennial Kick-Off Celebration Picnic in the Park will be offered on Sunday, August 23. The event will be held at Lake McDonald Lodge and Glacier Park Lodge. Details will be announced at a later date.
