Annual state park entry available with discount through March 30

Vehicle fees will go up next April 1

December 23, 2001


— Annual Kansas state park permits are available now at the lowest prices of the season.

Buying park permits now will enable patrons to take advantage of every nice day without having to spend any time waiting in lines to buy permits or having to buy daily permits at self-pay stations because park offices are now closed on weekends.

Annual state park permits went on sale Dec. 17 and are valid from the date purchased through Dec. 31, 2002. Now for a limited time at the reduced prices, they are an even better buy.

From now through March 30, 2002, annual state park motor vehicle permits are discounted to $30. A motor vehicle permit for a second vehicle registered to the same owner is $15.

Motor vehicle permits for Kansas residents 65 and older or holders of a Kansas handicapped license plate or permanent placard are $15.25; a second senior-disabled vehicle permit is $7.75.

Annual camping permits are $110.50. Annual trail permits are $10.50. These permits represent year round entrance to the parks for the cost of six days of permits, or camping for the cost of 17 days of daily camping permits, or four days of daily trail permits.

Beginning April 1, 2002, prices will return to the regular $35 for the motor vehicle permit and $130.50 for the annual camping permit.

Second vehicle permits will cost $17.50; senior/disabled vehicle first permits $17.75 and seconds $9.00. Trail permits remain at $10.50.

An annual motor vehicle permit allows entrance to all Kansas state parks for the entire year for the vehicle on which it is affixed.

An annual camping permit allows the holder to camp for the entire calendar year by paying only the cost of site utilities.

An annual trail pass allows the holder free entrance and use on the Prairie Spirit Trail and at Sand Hills State Park.
