Free National Parks Admissions For Vets

The National Park Service is waiving admission fees for past and present military service members during this three-day Veterans Day weekend.

That includes Georgia’s national parks and historic sites from Cumberland Island to the Civil War prison camp at Andersonville.

Other Georgia sites waiving admission for veterans include the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, the Chickamauga battlefield Civil War site at Fort Oglethorpe and the Chattahoochee River recreation area.

Sunday is the traditional date for Veterans Day, but the federal holiday will be observed on Monday.
