No problem. Hope you have a safe and interesting journey.

We only have about a dozen or so actual national parks all over the place, but we do have a few national historic sites and some other stuff they won't let us visit in case we vandalize it, or break something, or track mud in on the carpets.

(as a demonstration of US national gratitude, could you please encourage Mr. Zinke to extend the senior's discounted America the Beautiful annual pass option to your elderly Canadian neighbors? TY [emoticon] )

While you are doing that, extend it to senior citizens of any country in the coalition of the willing.

We were there a few years ago and purchased senior passes with no problem. Hand over the credit card and they were happy. Unless they thought CA meant Canada and not Calif?

Here's a write-up on the Senior Pass which is good for U.S. citizens:

1. If you are going to be in the parks (or combination of parks) more than 7 days, it is cheaper to get the annual pass.

2. If there is more than 2 adults, it is cheaper to get the family pass.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

FWIW- It's a little late now, but at the end of the year they had 20% off passes for this year. I don't know if they do this every year or not. I happened to spot that on 12/31 on the park service website so I bought the annual family pass just in time. I believe it was $136.00 regular price minus 20% off, and about another 20% less for the U.S. exchange rate. I paid around $87.00. I don't recall if the discount also applied to the senior pass.

Kluane National Park also does not charge a daily park fee as no pass is required either :

The only other National Parks in Canada I have visited are the Rocky Mountain four of Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, and Yoho in September 2011, 2012, and 2013.....was planning to visit Parks Canada again in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 however either a health issue or mechanical issue would happen leading to lack of time constraint issue with only a yearly 3 week vacation timeframe allowed since I am still a working stiff with a long distance to cover upon a round trip...Last four years was either a turnaround or a plan B route somewhere else for me - but hey, at least I still made it to western Canada on a yearly basis since 2006 in my camper.

After 21 years of camper hauling with my 70 Ford Truck, it was forced to retire starting in 2017 as it is now an all purpose truck for the first time that I owned it...Took two of my three weeks of vacation time working on converting and upgrading my now current designated camper rig in 2017 as I did get to spend 6 days in Canada which was better than nothing in that regard, although I did not get to utilize my 2017 Parks Canada pass like I had planned to.

As noted by others, Parks Canada does not restrict senior passes to Canadian citizens.
