SENIORS LIFETIME PARKS PASS TO GO FROM $10 TO $80 ON AUGUST 28

Get it while you can! If you’re 62 or older — and you love visiting national parks — you need to buy your lifetime parks pass while it’s still only $10.

Since 1994, the National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass has allowed senior citizens to visit more than 2,000 recreation sites (as many as you want, as many times as you want) for a flat one-time-only fee of $10. But that’s all about to change. The lifetime parks pass for seniors will increase to $80 on August 28.

With the pass, U.S. citizens and permanent residents age 62 and older (and their traveling companions) can receive free entry and discounted amenities at parks and spaces operated by the National Park Service, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Forest Service, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Even though the price is increasing, the benefits of all the senior lifetime parks passes will remain the same.

It's still a great deal. Visit a national park eight times and it will pay for itself. All visits after that will be free. If you won't visit a national park eight times before you die, then pay as you go.

I remember when an entrance pass to Assateague was just 2 dollars. I think it is now up to $15 for that same week pass. Where does this money go? Millions of Americans spend $15 for a similar pass to Skyline Dr and other entrance fee parks. That is a lot of money! Add to that camping and retail within those parks. I fail to see why the parks need to have any financial government assistance, when it is a business itself.

Where does the money go 4:03pm? Very SOON for $15 min wage!!!!

When the gov't balances itself with this $15 min wage, the price of national parks will increase more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
