Fees

 

Vermont State Parks rely on user fees for day-to-day operation and maintenance.

To enjoy unlimited, discounted use of the parks, consider a season pass or an individual pass.

Punch cards provide another way to visit the parks at a discount, and never expire.

If you are 62 yrs. or older and a Vermont resident, or a veteran who has been honorably discharged from active duty in US armed services, you are eligible for a lifetime day entry pass into the parks called the Green Mountain Passport.
