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.

Applications are available by contacting the Division of Parks & Forestry at 800-843-6420 or 609-984-0370 or online by clicking here.

Senior Citizen / Disability State Park Pass
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.
