State Park Fees and Services

 

Fees Quick List
Annual State Park Pass

The State Park Pass is available for New Jersey residents at $50; Non-Resident $75, providing free entrance for one calendar year to the state parks and forests facilities that charge daily walk-in or parking fees. If you are a frequent visitor to the state parks, the purchase of the State Park Pass can mean a substantial savings over the payment of daily walk-in or parking fees. The pass does not cover camping fees or guarantee entry when facilities are filled to capacity or for special events.

A second family vehicle pass may be purchased at the cost of $25.00 for New Jersey Residents; Non-residents $35, but must be purchased at the same time as the first annual pass. The vehicle on which the second pass will be placed must have the same registration address as appears on the initial pass application.

Applications are available by contacting the Division of Parks & Forestry at (800) 843-6420 or (609) 984-0370 or on-line:

This application also entitles New Jersey residents age 62 or over and people who are totally disabled to free admission and free parking upon providing adequate verification of their status. They also receive a $2 per night reduction in campsite rates.
