Always a great deal, Delaware State Parks’ 2013 annual passes are on sale
DOVER (Dec. 17, 2012) – Delaware State Parks’ Annual Passes are on sale now, just in time for holiday shopping. An annual pass to Delaware State Parks is a great bargain for people who love the outdoors or who hope to get in shape or reduce stress in the New Year.
“For just $27, the recipient, along with a car-full of family or friends, can have a year’s worth of fun and exercise in any or all of Delaware’s state parks,” said Delaware State Parks Marketing Director Dawn Morris. “Annual passes may be purchased throughout the year, but they make great family gifts and stocking stuffers.”
Vehicles with an annual pass windshield sticker may enter a state park without paying the daily entrance fee. Exceptions are Fort Delaware and Fenwick Island State Beach. A park entrance fee is collected daily from March 1 through November 30.
Season pass fees are:
• $27 for vehicles registered in Delaware
• $54 for vehicles registered out-of-state
• $12 or $27 for resident or non-resident seniors
Annual passes may be purchased at any park office, pass agent or at the Dover office, 89 Kings Highway, Dover. For online shoppers, this gift can be conveniently purchased at www.destateparks.com/annual-pass.
Season passes are nontransferable; a vehicle registration is not necessary to purchase. More information is available by calling 302-739-9220 or by visiting www.destateparks.com/annual-pass.
“We thank all who purchase an annual pass for their support of our parks,” says Mary Voshell, Chief of Business Services. “Because Delaware State Parks are largely self-sustaining, entrance fees are necessary to help cover costs of operations and maintenance. Revenue from the sale of the passes helps provide park services such as programs that connect children with nature, and maintenance of parks and trails, guarded beaches, park rangers and more.”
