Fees & Passes

No entrance pass required

An entrance pass is not required to access Lake Clark National Park & Preserve.

Other National Park Service sites may require an entrance pass or fee. Depending on your trip plans, an interagency pass may save you money.

2024 Free Entrance Days in the National Parks

Come experience the national parks! All National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone (other fees, including timed entry or reservation fees, may apply). Mark your calendar for these entrance fee-free dates:

You do not need to pay entrance fees or obtain permits from the National Park Service for any recreational activities in the park including backpacking, camping, river running, bear viewing, or visiting Dick Proenneke's cabin.

There are fees associated with staying at the park's public use cabins. Reservations are required.

If you're interested in acquiring an Annual, Senior, Access, Military, or 4th Grade pass accepted at other parks and federal recreation sites, you can learn more about pass availability and costs on the NPS Park Passes page.
