The National Park Service has released the list of free entrance dates for all U.S. national parks for 2017.  If you are thinking of visiting a U.S. national park in 2017, you might want to mark these dates on your calendar.

Normally, 120 of the more than 400 U.S. national parks charge an entrance free.  However, there are a few days a year where all U.S. national parks offer free entry.

The free entrance dates for all U.S. national parks for 2017 are listed on the National Park Service website as follows:

  • January 16: Martin Luther King Jr. Day
