Disabled guests can get a Disability Passport!

If you receive Social Security benefits, you may be eligible for a Disability Passport! With this passport, you’ll receive discounted admission to all parks. The disability rate is calculated as 50% off the entry fee, rounded up to the nearest whole dollar.


To receive a Disability Passport, you will need to provide photo ID and a Statement of Benefits from Social Security. You will need to renew your Disability Passport every year.

Disabled Veterans can receive FREE admission to all Texas State Parks!

If you’re a US Veteran with a VA service-connected disability rating of 60 percent or more, you qualify for FREE admission to Texas State Parks. You also qualify if you have lost a lower extremity.

To prove your eligibility, be prepared to show your Disabled Veterans of Texas license plate receipt, VA award letter and/or tax exemption letter for Texas veterans. This pass does not have to be renewed annually.

Seniors qualify for discounts on Texas State Parks, too!

Texas residents who are at least 65 years old qualify for a Senior Partial Passport. The fees for this pass are calculated just like the disability pass: entry fees are divided in half and then rounded up to the nearest whole dollar.

If you were born before September 1, 1930, you qualify for FREE admission to all Texas State Parks with the Senior Full Passport.

To qualify for these passes, you’ll need to show a driver’s license, birth certificate, military discharge papers or other paperwork that confirms your age, identity and address. These passes do not have to be renewed.

You may be able to save money on a National Parks pass, too!

Please consider lowering the age limit for Senior Full Passports. Do you really expect those Texans born before 1930 (they would be in their 90's) to venture out and walk the trails in the State parks. Even lowering the age limit from those born before 1940 is too restrictive. Those of us in our 70's still walk and visit the parks, so why not give a thought to lowering this age limit for Senior Full Passports to those born before 1950? I don't know why you haven't considered this before. Thank you

We hear you. We aren't in control of the regulations or the age limit. We just provide information on the services available to you. I'm so sorry for the frustration - Hannah
