This waives entry fees, but you still need to pay other fees (e.g camping). Previously this was just available as an annual pass and actually getting the physical pass was difficult as they would often be out of stock. Hopefully this lifetime pass fixes those issues. If you don’t want to deal with getting one at the actual park, you can do it online but there is a $10 processing fee (this should really be waived as well).
