Senior Pass – Cost $10
A lifetime pass for U.S. citizens or permanent residents age 62 or over. The pass can only be obtained in person at the park and is non-transferable. The Senior Pass provides a 50% discount on charges such as camping, swimming, boat launch, and specialized interpretive services.
This pass replaced the discontinued Golden Age Passport which my husband proudly carries at all times.
Visiting all the National Parks is on our bucket list. This will be a daunting task, since there are 59 parks and over 398 areas in the National Park System. So far we have visited 22 National Parks.  We hope the federal budget cuts won’t someday decide to cut the Senior Park Pass money saving perk.

Access Pass – Free
A lifetime pass for U.S. citizens or permanent residents with permanent disabilities. Documentation is required to obtain the pass. This pass replaced the discontinued Golden Access Passport.

Note: Golden Age and Golden Access Passports will continue to be honored according to the provisions of the pass.
