GRAND CANYON, AZ - Grand Canyon National Park will be joining national park units across the country in honor of National Public Lands Day with fee-free entry into the park Sept. 26.

Park visitors are reminded that fee-free designation applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, guided tours, or use of concessions. Park entrance stations will have the Interagency Senior and Annual Passes available for those who wish to purchase them. Visitors who plan to spend time in the park beyond Sept. 26 will need to pay the regular entrance fee for the remainder of their stay.

Grand Canyon's South Rim sits at approximately 7,000 feet. As a result, visitors should be prepared for appropriate weather conditions.

This year, additional fee-free days will occur in honor of Veterans Day Nov. 11.

More information on what there is to see and do at Grand Canyon National Park can be found at the park's website
