State Park Passes/Parking

Quick question. If we get the America the Beautiful pass ($80) does that cover parking to the various NP's???
Some of these parks have $20 parking fees.. just wondering...

Planning on Yosemite, Zion, Bryce, Arches, Canyonlands...

Yosemite does not charge extra for parking - it is included in the entrance fee. I don't know about the others.

Mount Rushmore National Memorial very clearly states they have a $10 parking fee.
"The $10.00 parking fee is a special use fee and is valid for the entire calendar year and is the only fee within the park. This is not a Federal entrance fee, so the America the Beautiful Pass, National Park Passes, Golden Age, Access and Eagle Passports are not accepted."

When I did a search for
"parking fee" "national park"
I did find a couple other NPS places that charge parking fees at some crowded areas. None of those are the ones you mention.

I was hoping it would be included in the pass...
