Purchasing an “Interagency” Annual Pass was a no-brainer for us this year. What is the America the Beautiful – the National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass or “Interagency” Annual Pass? The pass covers entrance fees required at sites managed by the Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Fish and Wildlife, USDA Forest Service, or the National Park Service. This means entrance to over 2000 sites!
We’ve already used our pass for the following:
American Fork Canyon (multiple visits) - $6 per vehicle or $45 annual pass
Red Rock Canyon Conservatory (twice) - $7 per vehicle or $30 annual pass
Yellowstone National Park - $25 per vehicle or $50 annual pass
Arches National Park - $7 per vehicle or $25 annual pass*
Mesa Verde National Park - $10 or $30 annual pass
And with more visits in the near future we’ll be getting more than our money’s worth. More information on the Annual Pass can be found here. Or to purchase online click here: http://store.usgs.gov/pass
