Want to play in a state park or national park but not pay for a pass? Tuesday is your day!

The National Park Service is celebrating its 104th birthday meaning free service is allowed to more than 100 state parks and national parks across the country.

That means a Discover Pass won't be necessary. Legislation was created in 2011 requiring a Discover Pass to access state parks, and also allowed the Parks and Recreation Commission to designate as many as 12 free days each year.

See a list below of the remaining free state park days this year, and find out more information here.
