Freebie Alert: No Entrance Fees on Federal Lands This Weekend

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
Badlands    48, sunny
Death Valley    73, sunny
Everglades    68, few showers
Great Sand Dunes    42, sunny
Haleakala    58, scattered showers
Olympic    36, showers
Yellowstone    24, mostly sunny
Yosemite    48, sunny
Zion    57, sunny
