The National Park Service is celebrating its 99th birthday with free admission into all 408 of its parks Tuesday.

Only 127 national parks usually charge an entrance fee, but today you can visit them all free of charge.

The beehive state is home to five national parks: Arches, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Zion.

Admission is free but parks will still charge fees for boating, fishing, camping, special tours and other permits,

The Park Service also plans to waive entrance fees on Sept. 26, which is National Public Lands Day, and Nov. 11, in honor of Veterans Day.
