Many commemorative events will also be taking place at some of the historic battlefields and military sites that are part of the National Park Service system.

You can also visit any National Park for veteran free entrance weekend in the north state.

10 is Veterans Day in the United States. The military continued to oversee several of the country's earliest national parks until the National Park Service was established in 1916.

Although entrance fees will be waived, a sunrise reservation is still needed for anyone wishing to enter Haleakalā National Park between 3 and 7 a.m.


The other is November 24, a Friday picked to encourage the public to make an autumn visit to a state park. This tradition of providing veterans and active duty military members with opportunities for relaxation, recreation and camaraderie in the great outdoors continues today and includes partnerships with many service-related organizations. Their skills provide a wealth of benefits to national parks and park visitors. While not all national parks incur a cost, numerous most popular sites, including Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and Yosemite, among others, do.

Veterans who want to get outside this weekend can enjoy Whiskeytown National Park, or Lassen Nation Park for free entrance weekend on Saturday and Sunday.

Rangers say National Parks are tactile reminders of the values, ideals, and freedoms that our veterans and active duty military protect. Permanently disabled veterans also can receive a free lifetime Access Pass to all national parks, forests and wildlife refuges.
