National Parks Senior Pass
I haven't run this past Jenn and Julie, but possibly American the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass is the greatest deal around.
Only one stipulation, you have to be age 62.
Recently, it came to my attention that some of our friends did not realize they qualified for the Pass at the young age of 62.
The Senior Pass, previously called Golden Age Passport, is available at any National Park site. Proof of age and $10 is all that is required.
What does only $10 get you? Click on this link for any questions, but basically, it is free admission to National Parks and half off of National Parks or Federal Recreational campgrounds. We've found most Corps of Engineers managed campgrounds honor the Pass as do some privately managed campgrounds in National Forests. Recently, we discovered Chimney Rock Archaeological Area in southern Colorado which is maintained by private donations honored it. We always ask. Also, it is important to note that additional fees such as parking or hiking are full price as are items available for sale inside the park.
If you qualify and enjoy our National Parks, get one the next time you visit.
