How do I sign up?!
To get the pass, you can download the application here. You need to show proof of age (like a driver’s license or government ID) and proof of residency. It’s best to pick up your pass at a park office because applying for it via mail adds an additional $20 processing fee.
To give you an idea of the savings: without the pass, Yosemite National Park charges $20 per car, Grand Canyon National Park charges $25 per vehicle, and Everglades National Park charges $10 per vehicle. Passes are good for admission only. Such things as camping permits, ranger tours and purchases from concessions in the park are additional.
