Veterans Honored by Free Lifetime Pass to National Parks

The nation is celebrating its veterans by launching a free lifetime pass to over 2,000 federal recreational sites and over 400 million acres of public lands. Veterans of the U.S. Armed Services and Gold Star Families can now get a free lifetime pass to include national parks, wildlife refuges, and forests, including the Lassen Volcanic National Park.

Secretary Deb Haaland, said “We have a sacred obligation to America’s veterans,” This new lifetime pass is a small demonstration of our nation’s gratitude and support.

With the pass, you can enter the recreational sites for free along with your passengers. To get in you will need to have one of four forms of ID, either your (Department of Defense ID Card, Veteran Health ID (VHIC), Veteran ID Card, or veteran’s designation on your driver’s license or ID card). Gold Star Families self-certify that you qualify and download a voucher on NPS.gov.
