Need a last-minute getaway this weekend? Think about a national park—or any federally managed public land. No entrance fees will be charged at any of them Saturday through Monday (Jan. 14-16), which is Martin Luther King Day.
All other fees (campground fees, tour fees and other concession fees) remain in effect. In this mostly snow-free winter, here are the forecasts, subject to change, for Saturday based on projections from Weather.com or NOAA for 10 randomly selected national parks:
|Park||Jan. 14 Forecast|
|Acadia||27, snow showers|
|Death Valley||73, sunny|
|Everglades||68, few showers|
|Great Sand Dunes||42, sunny|
|Haleakala||58, scattered showers|
|Yellowstone||24, mostly sunny|
