Cabrillo National Monument may be one of San Diego's most scenic parks, also offering a look into California history where the first European settler, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, stepped foot on the country's West Coast. Visitors can also enjoy access to the low-tide pools and Old Point Loma Lighthouse.

If you happen to be elsewhere in the state, you may be in luck. Here's a complete list of California's other national parks offering free admission on Saturday.

Outside of these special free entrance days, free passes are offered to active duty military personnel and citizens with a permanent disability. A special free admission pass is also offered for fourth-grade students through the Every Kid in a Park program. For more information, visit the National Parks Service website.
