New Jersey State Park
The New Jersey State Park Pass is the perfect
holiday gift for outdoor enthusiasts and history buffs,
offering unlimited entrance during calendar year 2002 to
New Jersey's 39 state parks, 11 forests, three recreation
areas and 57 historic sites.
"Whether you're interested in hiking,
fishing, horseback riding or exploring New Jersey's history,
the annual State Park Pass provides a convenient and inexpensive
way to make outdoor enjoyment a regular family outing or
a rejuvenating quiet time in which to escape daily stresses,"
said state Department of Environm ental Protection (DEP)
Commissioner Bob Shinn.
For $35, state park users can realize substantial
savings over the payment of daily walk-in or parking fees,
which range from $1 to $7 per visit.
To obtain a New Jersey State Park Pass,
visitors must complete an application form that is available
at all state park offices. Only one pass request is issued
per application form. A second family vehicle pass may be
purchased at the cost of $25 at any time during the year.
The second pass must be obtained from the same location
where the initial pass was purchased.
New Jersey residents who are age 62 or
older or who are disabled may be eligible for a Senior Citizen
Pass or Disabled Pass, which are also available at park
