Entrance to National Parks is Free on MLK Day 🇺🇸🌅

🏞️ We Found You Hotel Stays Near the Parks from $67 a Night

From $67

Published by

As you might know, there are five days for free entrance to the entire US National Park system in 2023. The first one is on January 16th for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and it just so happens that there are lots of great rates near many of the parks.

So you can go see the park for free, and then stay at a hotel for pirate prices. That's a win-win situation, folks!


These hotels are all worth checking outside of days with free entrance to National Parks, but we focused on best-value rates for the night of January 16th:

Joshua Tree National Park

Out in the Californian desert, Joshua Tree is a perfect selection for a winter nature getaway without having to experience winter weather.

This hotel is rated 4/5 on TripAdvisor.

Grand Canyon National Park

Visiting the Grand Canyon is always a good idea, and free entrance is just another reason to go!

This hotel is rated 3.5/5 on TripAdvisor & Travelers' Choice 2022.

Volcanoes National Park

Hawaii has great weather in January, and flights are often dipping below $200 to get you there if you're not based on the Big Island. Though prices can be high for a place to stay, we've got a great deal for you right near the entrance to Volcanoes National Park!

This hotel is rated 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

This is the most visited National Park in the world for good reason. The Smokies are accessible year round and wintertime, with its snowy wonderlands, is no exception.

This hotel is rated 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor & Travelers' Choice 2022.

Yosemite National Park

If you want to do your visit all in your own vehicle, make sure to have tire chains. (but you probably already knew that) Yosemite can be stunning in wintertime!

This hotel is rated 3.5/5 on TripAdvisor.
