Beginning Veterans Day 2020, the National Park Service is offering free park admission to veterans and Gold Star Families, indefinitely.

The National Park Service and Operation Live Well said veterans and qualifying family members will 'receive free access to more than 2,000 federal recreation areas, including national parks, wildlife refuges and forests,' including Rocky Mountain National Park

Veterans must show identification, such as a Department of Defense Identification Card, Veteran Health Identification Card, Veteran ID Card or have veterans designation on a state-issued ID, NPS said, in order to have free park admission.

Gold Star Families are the immediate family of someone who lost their life in the line of duty, and can get a voucher from the park service here.

Those traveling with a veteran or Gold Star Family can also have free admission to parks if they are in the same vehicle.
