“Joining Friends or buying a ParkPass is an easy way to help protect and enhance Georgia’s 63 state parks and historic sites,” said Friends Director Andy Fleming. “We couldn’t do it without the visitors and volunteers who care about Georgia as much as we do.”

Each year the ParkPass program generates around $3 million for improvements at 63 state parks and historic sites. The $30 Annual ParkPass exempts visitors from paying the daily $3 – $4 parking fee at parks such as Amicalola Falls, Sweetwater Creek, Providence Canyon and Skidaway Island. The tag hangs from a rearview mirror and is good for one year from its purchase date. To purchase an Annual ParkPass, stop by any state park office or call 770-389-7401. Discounts are offered to seniors (50%) and disabled veterans (25%). ParkPasses are not valid at Stone Mountain, Lake Lanier Islands, Jekyll Island or the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Areas because these properties are not state parks operated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. For a list of included parks, visit www.GeorgiaStateParks.org.

The Friends of Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites is a non-profit organization with more than 30 chapters across the Peach State. Members support state parks and historic sites in a variety of ways, including volunteering, contributing financially or seeking legislative support. Benefits include a free Annual ParkPass, free annual historic site pass, gift shop discounts, free round of golf or night of camping, and a free ticket on the SAM Shortline Excursion Train. Membership levels begin at $45 for individuals and $70 for families, increasing with each level of membership. To join, call 1-888-948-2092 or log on to www.friendsofgastateparks.org.
