Snippet: America The Beautiful Pass is also known as Interagency Pass and previously known as the Golden Eagle Passport. It is a big program and can lead to free entrance fees at National Parks and Forests and lands managed by the federal and state governments. Some of the passes also have the benefit of discounts on fees while inside the park.
The Rules are Subject to Change
Not only are the prices, rules, and benefits subject to change, but also the look of the passes also change frequently. I included a picture of the Access Pass that I use. I qualify for this pass based on my veteran’s disability status. It was free with proof of service and disability. The more current pass designs and the earlier pass designs are pictured below.
My Access Pass gives me free entrance, parking, and discounted camping (usually 50% off) at most National Parks, Forest Service Campgrounds, and Bureau of Land Management Campgrounds.

I also qualify for different state programs. South Dakota has discounts at state parks. I also get a free fishing and hunting license in South Dakota.
Texas and Oregon both give discounts associated with my veterans disability status even though I am a non-resident. Many states have programs for veterans which leads to discounts on multiple programs in that state.
Texas has a program for disabled veterans which provides discounts at Texas State Parks for disabled veterans from any state. Here is a link to that program. Texas State Parks Pass The Texas State Park Pass for disabled veterans is only available in person and you do not have to be from Texas to get this free pass.
The best program for disabled veterans is from Oregon State Parks. The program is so good that I made a dedicated post to it. Oregon State Parks Special Access Pass

I would also qualify for many of the passes below but I don’t have them because the benefits of my pass are equal or better than any of the other passes pictured below. Each of the passes below has different benefits and costs.
Many state parks also honor the discount programs to America the Beautiful pass holders.
