Adding Value to Something Priceless

This is Passport to Texas State Park Getaway

You can’t put a price on our incredible state park system. But you can get a deal when it comes to visiting them. Our State park Guide, Bryan Frazier is here to tell us about the Texas State Park Pass.

:48—The State Park pass is a program that’s been one of the most successful things we’ve done in the last several years. And depending on how long you stay, or how many people go along with you on that trip, the State Park Pass can, by far, be the most economical way to see our parks. It waives the entrance fees of everyone in the vehicle—in a non-commercial vehicle—and you get some discount coupons for camping. You get automatic discounts on what you purchase on the state park store; so it pays for itself in about three visits, depending how long you stay. It’s $60 for 12 months from the date of purchase. So if you buy it May it’s good through May [the following year], you buy it in September, it’s good through September [the following year]. And, again, it waives the entrance fees for everyone in your car every time you come, so it’s unlimited visits as long as the card holder is present. And what we find it people love it.

Thanks, Bryan.

You can buy the pass at any Texas State Park. You can also buy it over the phone when you call the Texas Parks and Wildlife Customer service center at 512-389-8900.
