Save the Redwoods League, California State Parks and 24 park agencies are offering free day-use admission to more than 100 redwood parks statewide on Oct 13

Passes are available for download at starting on September 26 at 8am. The passes cover day-use admission and parking fees to those parks where there are usually entrance fees. Passes for October 13 are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
For parks that are always free, no pass is required to participate.
For parks that require passes, the number of passes is limited. They will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis according to each park's capacity.
Only one day-use pass is needed per vehicle, per park.
The pass covers day-use admission and parking fees. The pass does not guarantee a parking space or entry if the park is full due to high demand.
To ensure valid entry and avoid fines, printed passes must be presented to park staff members at entry gates or displayed on vehicle dashboards if no personnel are on duty.
Electronic images of the pass will not be accepted.
Consider visiting a state park during off-peak hours - opening time to 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to closing time.
Visitors without passes are welcome, but must pay admission.
We encourage all park visitors to review and obey park rules.
Share your experiences with us on social media and tag them with #Stand4Redwoods and #FreeRedwoodsDays.
