CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - As an appreciation for military service, the National Park Service issued free passes for any national park with an entrance fee to all service members and their dependents for the past year.

The passes must be obtained in person at a federal recreation site by showing a form of military identification. The pass covers the service member’s fee and three accompanying adults age 16 and over.

The Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass voids any of the 397 national parks’ entrance fees, and permits free entrance to parks managed by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation and the United States Forest Service.

There are several federal recreation areas who issue the annual pass in North Carolina, the closest being the Croatan Park main office in New Bern.
