New Jersey State Park Pass Available

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 offices.

For more information, visit any state park office or write to the New Jersey DEP, Division of Parks and Forestry, PO Box 404, Trenton, NJ, 08625. Applications are also available by calling 1-800-843-6420.

For a free copy of the New Jersey State Park Service's Fall and Winter Calendar of Events 2001-2002, call 1-800-843-6420 or visit any Division of Parks and Forestry office. Text telephone users can call NJ Relay Services at 1-800-852-7899.
