$25 entrance fee Yellowstone/Tetons (I'm assuming it's still one fee for both)
20 entrance fee Yosimite
25 for Grand Canyon
0 Redwood National Park is free to visit!
25 for Zion
25 for Bryce Canyon
0 no entrance fee for Mount Rushmore
12 at Bandelier National Monument
10 for Theodore Roosevelt National Park

It depends on which ones you will be stopping by, what loop ones takes....simple math, it you do more than $80 in fees it would be worth it, it not, no.

26 is a good age to be starting to see the country, good luck with you trek. Should be a really good one.

Don't forget to get your passport - eParks.com: *Passport® To Your National Parks* - eParks - Where your purchase supports America's National Parks.
Dayton Duncan who co-produced The National Parks: America's Best Idea with Ken Burns has visited every National park (including America Samoa!). and has his passport stamped for each one, we can only hope to do that - you are at a great age to start!

Happy Trails

The pass is not a bad deal. Even better if you don't insist on hookups. At Yellowstone camp sites with hookups $45 per night, no hookups with the pass $6.00 to $12.50 per night.

Question U.s. Passes and aarp

I visited friends in Nova Scotia last week on the way home from Scouting in NH. They own a small trailer in a Florida trailer park. They rent the land it sits on from the owners of the park.
Recently they received an invitation to join AARP. They are considered property owners and qualified to join. They signed up.

Does anyone know if you have to be a U.S. citizen to get membership in AARP?
Is that yearly pass for the Nat'l Parks available to non-residents too?

If I head south this winter it sure would come in handy.

Thanks. Scouter Dave

Correction

The camping fees in Yellowstone for NON-hookup sites is double what I quoted earlier. There is no discount with the Annual Pass.

Can't answer the AARP Question. However, I checked the to Join Now "button" & the form one's fills out has International listed plus: Canada and Mexico, 1 Years/US $17.00
Other Countries, 1 Years/US $28.00
https://appsec.aarp.org/MSS/join/app...mp=MBLRSTATE_A

Seems it would be a Yes.

Seems Yes, for the Annual Pass as well:
$80 annual pass
Available to everyone.

But No for the Senior Pass, unless a permanent resident:
Senior Pass
$10 Lifetime pass
For U.S. citizens or permanent residents age 62

Does anyone know if you have to be a U.S. citizen to get membership in AARP?
AARP excerpt:
"The organization was originally named the American Association of Retired Persons, but in 1999 it officially changed its name to "AARP" to reflect that its focus was no longer American retirees. AARP no longer requires that members be retired, but be at least age 50; it does not extend full membership privileges to applicants who are retired but not yet 50."

I didn't know that owning property in the United States qualified one for AARP membership. I thought you had to be an American over the age of 50.
