This is the greatest deal around. If anyone reading this is 62 and does not have one, the next time you visit a National Park site, sign up. It is only $10. You have to purchase it in person because they have to verify age Here is more information.
On our recent trip to Arkansas, we drove to nearby Beaver Dam and lake near Eureka Springs. We passed a beautiful Corps of Engineers campground. It appeared it was an island, reached by a causeway. It was morning and we were not looking for a camp site, but if we were, the sites would have been half price with our Federal Golden Age Passport, which is now called Senior Pass.
Also, any National Park is free admittance with the pass. On our recent trip to Colorado, the Chimney Rock site charged half price with the pass even though it was privately maintained as did another campground that was privately owned but in a National Forest. The Great Sand Dunes was free admittance. Additional fees such as parking are still full price at some parks such as Mount Rushmore even though admittance is free.
Fishing license is another issue. Each time I fish in a different state, I have to buy another license. Wouldn’t it be great if, at the least, states would honor a home state license if only for a day or two. Or, even better, issue a national license.
