To kick off National Park Week, all entrance fees will be waived on Saturday, April 20. National Park Week 2019 is from April 20 – 28.
Spring break is a busy time at Bandelier National Monument, visitors may want to come in the morning or late afternoon and avoid arriving at the park in the middle of the day, as parking is limited and the shuttle service will not begin until May 16. The Visitor Center is open every day 9 AM – 5 PM, and trails are open from dawn until dusk.
Other fee free days throughout the National Park Service this year include Founders Day on August 25, Public Lands Day on September 28, and Veterans Day on November 11.
