Adventure in America's Backyard

It is time for one chapter to end and another to begin — Blue Star Parks is now Blue Star Outdoors!

Here at Blue Star Families, we recognize the value of finding tranquility, community, opportunity, and belonging in outdoor spaces everywhere. Hence, the reason behind the new name! Blue Star Outdoors offers more inclusivity to all that is to be discovered in the great outdoors. We hope it further inspires you and your family to get outside and connect with nature — no matter where you are living or traveling!

The great outdoors are never far from your front door. In a world of change, spending time outside in a local, state or national park can be a constant. Grab a free America the Beautiful park pass at entry points and visitors centers at most national parks to begin exploring America’s bounty and beauty.

With more than 2,000 national parks and federal recreation sites at your fingertips, there is never a shortage of wilderness to explore or memories to make.


We’re excited to welcome our brand new cohort of Outdoor Explorers for All Club members! 100 more families will join us for a year of exploration and fun while creating a connection to the outdoors.
