PHOENIX — Arizona State Parks is honoring those who have served by offering free admission to all state parks for veterans and active duty military Wednesday.

“Our mission is to make Arizona the best place for veterans in the country,” Gov. Doug Ducey said in a press release. “On Veterans Day and every day, we honor and recognize our nation’s heroes for their commitment to serve.”

All of Arizona’s more than 30 state parks are waiving their fees, however Kartchner Caverns State Park tours or other fee-based programs are not included.

Visitors will be asked to show their military identification to receive free entry.

Coronavirus restrictions, which limit the amount of guests allowed in each park, are still in effect.

Masks are required in ranger stations, restrooms, stores and historic buildings.

Arizona’s state parks also offer discounts on admission to veterans and active military members throughout the year.
