Olympic National Park will waive entrance fees for all visitors for Veterans Day weekend. That means a savings of $15 per vehicle or $5 per person on foot, bicycling or on a motorcycle.
Wilderness camping and campground fees will remain in effect.
Today through Monday, the Olympic National Park Visitor Center at 3002 Mount Angeles Road in Port Angeles will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center, about 31 miles south of Forks off Highway U.S. 101, will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Most park campgrounds and roads will remain open, weather permitting.
Deer Park and Obstruction Point roads and Altair, Deer Park, Fairholme and South Beach campgrounds are closed for the season.
A Discover Pass will not be needed to enter state parks through Monday.
The pass, which costs $10 a day or $30 a year, still will be needed to access lands managed by the state departments of Natural Resources and Fish and Wildlife during State Parks free days.
