Fees and Passes
Vermont State Parks rely on user fees for day-to-day operation and maintenance.
Punch cards never expire and they provide another way to visit the parks at a discount.
If you are 62 years or older and a Vermont resident, or a Vermont resident who is 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.
