America the Beautiful – Access Pass

2 min read

The Access Pass offers a lifetime free entry to national parks, monuments, and recreation areas. It also gives a discount on fees for camping, swimming, boat launching, and guided tours. For areas that have a per-vehicle fee, you can use the Access Pass for yourself and other passengers in a non-commercial vehicle. For areas that have a per-person fee, you can use the Access Pass for yourself and three additional adults. Children under 16 are free.

The Access Pass can be used at the following five Federal agencies:

  • Bureau of Land Management
  • Bureau of Reclamation
  • Fish & Wildlife Service
  • USDA Forest Service
  • National Park Service

Please note: Each of these agencies have different rules. You must contact the site you plan to visit to find out whether the pass is accepted there and what services and discounts are available.


How do I get help?

You can get the Access Pass from one of the five Federal recreation sites/agencies listed above. You can go in person to get the pass at a federal recreation site, or you can get the pass through the mail. In both cases you will have to provide documents that show your residency status and proof of disability or blindness.
