National Parks Fee Free Friday

Get outdoors and and enjoy the last Friday before school starts! This Friday, August 4th is a Fee Free Day — Gulf Islands National Seashore invites all visitors to celebrate the Anniversary of the Great American Outdoors Act at any National Park Service site for free.


All entrance fees will be waived on Friday at the Opal Beach, Fort Pickens, and Johnson Beach sites. This heat wave isn’t going anywhere before Friday so make sure you go early, bring plenty of water and wear your swimmers to take a swim in the Gulf that has continued to show off all summer long.

What is the Great American Outdoors Act? The Great American Outdoors Act (#GAOA) provides funding to improve infrastructure, address extensive and long-overdue maintenance and repair needs, and expand recreation opportunities in national parks across the country.

Happy park hopping!
