The pass covers 2,000 recreation areas operated by five federal agencies. It allows up to four adults in a private vehicle or RV (kids under 16 are always free) into a federal land for 12 months from purchase.
Two people can sign and use the pass. They don?t have to be related.
This does not include camping, parking or other such fees, however you can use this pass wherever a federal Adventure Pass is required.
Buy at federal ranger stations, call 1-888-ASK USGS and also online at http://www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm.
And note that if you?re active-duty military, you can now get this pass for free.
