“Patriot Day is a holiday observed in the United States on Sept. 11,” TPWD said on its website. “The date commemorates the lives of those who died in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Virginia, and those who perished when the hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania. The holiday also recognizes those who died attempting to rescue people trapped by the attacks.”

There is no ranger station at the Bauer Unit so exact cash or a park pass can be used at the self-pay station.
