National Park and Interagency Military Pass
U.S. military Service members, Veterans and Gold Star Families are eligible to receive free lifetime access to more than 2,000 Federal recreation areas, including national parks, wildlife refuges, and forests. The free Military Pass is a way to thank America's Veterans, Gold Star Families, and current military and their dependents for their support of our country and to encourage them to explore recreational opportunities on their public lands and waters.
The new lifetime passes will be available to distribute later in 2022. Until then, Gold Star Families and Veterans may continue to use The Interagency Annual Military Pass with proof of eligibility.
