Veterans get in state parks free

In honor of Veterans Day, Alabama State Parks will waive the entrance fee for veterans at all state parks on Nov. 11-13, 2016. Anyone who indicates they are a veteran will be admitted into the park day-use areas without charge. No identification will be required.

Veterans have been leaders in the development of state parks and other public lands across the country. Several of Alabama’s state parks were developed with help from the Civilian Conservation Corps, which employed numerous veterans.

“Our parks and public lands are places for reflection and serenity, and they stand as a tribute to those who have served our great nation,” said Greg Lein, State Parks Director. “It is important for us all to honor our veterans and other partners who make our parks system possible.”
