Delaware State Parks 2014 Annual Pass
now on sale
DOVER (Dec.10, 2013) – 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 DNREC Division of Parks and Recreation 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 Nov. 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 DNREC’s Richardson and Robbins building in Dover at 89 Kings Highway. For online shoppers, an annual pass can be bought via 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 visiting destateparks.com/annual-pass.
Because Delaware State Parks are largely self-sustaining, entrance fees are necessary to help cover costs of operations and maintenance. “We thank all who purchase an annual pass for their contribution to Delaware’s state parks,” said Mary Voshell, Chief of Business Services. “Revenue from the sale of the passes helps provide park services such as programs that connect children with nature, maintenance of parks and trails, guarded beaches, park rangers and more.”
