Entrance fees will be waived on Thursday in Acadia National Park.
Thursday, August 4, marks the two-year anniversary of the signing of the Great American Outdoors Act. To celebrate the occasion, entrance fees at National Parks around the country will be waived, including at Acadia National Park. The day is one of five dates this year that are designated as "fee-free days".
According to the National Park Service, "fee-free days provide a great opportunity to visit a new place or an old favorite, especially one of the national parks that normally charge an entrance fee." After August 4, there will be two more opportunities to visit Acadia National Park for free this year.
- August 4: Great American Outdoors Day
- September 24: National Public Lands Day
- November 11: Veterans Day
Fee-free days do not cover amenities or use fees for activities like camping, boat launch use, transportation, or special tours.
