PHOENIX — All Arizona residents will get free admission to more than 30 state parks on January 17 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Visitors will need to show an Arizona ID and all entrance fees will be waived.

Fees will still apply for tours at Kartchner Caverns and Riordan Mansion state parks, camping, special events and concessions.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey said in a statement that he encourages everyone to get outside on Monday and visit the beautiful state parks Arizona has to offer.

U.S. National Parks will also have free admission on Jan. 17, one of five days throughout the year where entrance fees are waived. There are three national parks in Arizona: Grand Canyon, Saguaro, and Petrified Forest.

Camping, hotel, and tour fees still apply.
