Free Grand Canyon park entry Presidents Day weekend
Navajo-Hopi Observer


GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - Grand Canyon National Park will join national parks across the country to celebrate Presidents Day weekend, from Feb. 15 to 17, with fee free admission.

Park officials remind visitors that fee-free designation applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours or use of concessions. Visitors who plan to spend time in the park after Feb. 17 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, park officials suggest visitors be prepared for winter weather and driving conditions, and should be aware that road closures and temporary suspension of shuttle service may occur with little or no notice if winter weather passes through the area.

This year, additional fee-free days will occur for the kick off to National Park Week on April 19-20, the National Park Service's birthday on Aug. 25, National Public Lands Day on Sept. 27 and Veterans Day on Nov. 11.

More information about what there is to see and do in Grand Canyon National Park is available on the park's website www.nps.gov/grca. More on national park fee-free days is available by visiting www.nps.gov/findapark/feefreeparks.htm.
