For anyone looking for one last vacation before the start of school, make the trip up to Glacier National Park for the day.
On Monday, all national parks will have free admission for the public to celebrate the 98th birthday of the National Park Service. The agency was established when then-president Woodrow Wilson signed the National Park Service Organic Act in 1916.
The national parks in Montana that will be waiving their usual entrance fees include Glacier, Yellowstone National Park, Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, and Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument.
You have free articles remaining.
Camping and other fees will still apply.
Montana’s other national parks, which include Big Hole National Battlefield, Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site, Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site and Nez Perce National Historical Park, do not charge admission.
The next fee-free days will be Sept. 27 for National Public Lands Day and Nov. 11 for Veterans Day.
