Enjoy the splendor of Guernsey State Park, Curt Gowdy State Park, Edness Kimball Wilkins Park and many others with a discounted Wyoming State Parks Pass! If you’re a frequent visitor, it makes sense to purchase the annual passes for $33 per year. If that’s beyond your budget, though, we found some alternatives!
Veterans can visit, camp and play FREE at Wyoming State Parks!
If you’re a Wyoming resident with a 50% or higher service-connected disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs, you qualify for a Lifetime Veteran’s Permit! This permit authorizes you to use state parks, recreation areas, archaeological sites and historic sites without paying ANY daily use, overnight or other fees for the rest of your life (or until you move out of Wyoming state).
To qualify, you’ll need to submit an application, proof of Wyoming residency and proof of 50% or higher service-connected disability status. Simply include a Wyoming driver’s license or utility bill to prove your residency. You can download a letter from the VA certifying your disability level from eBenefits.gov.
You can deliver or mail your completed application packet to Wyoming Parks Headquarters at the following address:
Attn: Concession & Revenue
WYO Parks Headquarters
2301 Central Avenue
Barrett Building 4th Floor
Cheyenne WY 82002
For a limited time, all 4th graders can get a FREE pass also!
Through August 31, 2017, Wyoming Parks are honoring the Every Kid in a Park passes that can be used at National Parks! If you have a 4th grader in your household, get your pass at the Every Kid in a Park website and go visit some Wyoming state parks!
Some parks are always FREE to visit!
There are no daily use charges at Connor Battlefield Historic Site, Medicine Lodge Archaeological Site, and Sinks Canyon State Park.
