What is not free?

Parks Canada is pleased to offer free admission to our places, however, regular fees still apply for other experiences and services, such as:

  • Reservation fees
  • Guided tours and hikes and programs not usually included with admission
  • Some special event fees

  • Overnight backcountry use.

Note: This is not an exhaustive list. Please verify with the location you will be visiting for more details.

Entry and service fees are charged at most national parks and national historic sites, where revenues are kept to support visitor services and facilities. This means that every time you visit a park or site you are investing in its future — and in a legacy for future generations.

The following definitions apply to entry and service fee categories unless otherwise specified:

Adult: Person 17 to 64 years of age
Senior: Person 65 years of age or over
