Rocky Mountain, 3 other Colorado national parks free Saturday for National Public Lands Day

DENVER – If you’ve been dying to get out to the high country and hesitated because of the weather, we have two good news: 1.) The weather is going to be awesome this weekend and 2.) four Colorado national parks will waive their admission fees this Saturday.

You read that right.

Highs are expected to be in the low 70s with cloudy to partly cloudy skies for both Saturday and Sunday, which fortunately for all of us outdoors-y folk means an extra weekend to enjoy the beautiful Colorado mountains.

And, as part of National Public Lands Day, all national parks across the U.S. will be free of charge for visitors. Colorado has four:

  • Rocky Mountain National Park
  • Mesa Verde National Park
  • Sand Dunes National Park
  • Preserve and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

On free admission days, entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees are waived. However, other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not waived.
