Arizona residents have free admission to state parks for MLK weekend
PHOENIX – Gov. Doug Ducey announced that all Arizona residents will have free admission to state parks during Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend.
Arizona residents will enjoy waived fees to any state parks from Saturday to Monday. Visitors must show their Arizona ID for the free entrance.
This year marks the third consecutive year of the MLK fee waiver.
There will still be fees for tours, camping, special events, concessions, the Boyce Thompson Aboretum and Kartchner Caverns State Park cave tours.
“January is a great time to get out and explore the parks in our amazing state, and a three-day weekend is the perfect opportunity,” Ducey said in an Arizona State Parks and Trails press release.
“I encourage all Arizona residents to visit a state park near them during this special weekend.”
The Arizona State Parks and Trails website has an interactive map showing the state parks, and more information is available by calling 1-877-MY-PARKS.
