National and Regional Interagency Passes
Revenues from recreation fee passes generally stay where they are collected to help support recreation facilities, programs, and services. Which pass is right for you? The pass series, collectively known as the America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass, is shown below with a brief explanation of each.
Interagency Annual Pass
This pass is available to the general public and provides access to, and use of, Federal recreation sites that charge an Entrance or Standard Amenity Fee for a year, beginning from the date of sale.
Interagency Senior Pass
This is a lifetime pass for U.S. citizens or permanent residents age 62 or over. This pass allows free entrance to federal recreation areas that charge an entrance or standard amentiy fee. The Senior Pass provides a 50 percent discount on some Expanded Amenity Fees charged for facilities and services such as camping, swimming, boat launch, and specialized interpretive services.
Are Golden Passports and National Parks Passes still valid?
If you still have a Golden Passport or National Parks Pass they may still be valid.
The Golden Eagle Passports and the National Parks Passes that were sold in 2006 will be honored until they expire. The Golden Age Passports and Golden Access Passports will continue to be honored for the lifetime of the pass holder, so both passes will be valid for many years to come.
