National Park Week starts Saturday, and you know what that means? Free admission to all 382 parks in the system, including the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain parks.

In addition to the waived entrance fees, there will be discounts on lodging, food and gift shops in many of the parks, and hundreds of family events are planned throughout the system.
