Free Access for U.S. Military Veterans and Gold Star Families
As of November 11, 2020, Veterans Day, U.S. military veterans and Gold Star Families now receive free access to more than 2,000 federal recreation areas, including national parks, wildlife refuges, and forests. This free access program is a way to thank America’s veterans and Gold Star families for their support of our country and to encourage them to explore recreational opportunities on their public lands and waters.
Veterans, for the purpose of this program, are identified as individuals who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Reserves, and are able to present one of the following forms of identification when entering a national park.
Department of Defense Identification Card (CAC Card)
Veteran Health Identification Card (VHIC)
Veteran ID Card
- Veteran designation on a state-issued U.S. driver’s license or identification card
Gold Star Families are the next of kin of a member of the United States Armed Forces who lost their life in a “qualifying situation”, such as a war, an international terrorist attack, or a military operation outside of the United States, while serving with the United States Armed Forces.
Before visiting a federal recreation area, Gold Star Family members must download, print, and self-certify through signing a voucher to present to the ranger or place on the vehicle dashboard at unstaffed sites.
U.S. military veterans and Gold Star Family members can find out more and download the Gold Star Family Free Access Voucher by visiting this free access program's National Park Service website.
