America the Beautiful – National Parks And Federal Recreational Lands Pass


The Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (in Public Law 108-447) established a new recreation fee program for the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR), National Park Service (NPS), Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and Forest Service (FS). The Act authorizes the agencies to collect fees at federal recreational lands and waters. The act authorizes different kinds of fees, outlines criteria for establishing fees, and prohibits charging fees for certain activities or services. The act also authorizes an interagency pass that can be used at federal recreation sites throughout the nation - the America the Beautiful Pass. Along with Department of the Interior, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is currently issuing these passes.

There are several types of America the Beautiful Passes (Passes) available. Information about these passes are available at https://store.usgs.gov/pass/index.html
