Save Money on Your Next State Parks Trip!

(Last Updated On: July 23, 2018)

Some of the most beautiful places in the US are tucked away in State Parks… and entry fees can be prohibitive when you’re low income. If you’re looking for ways to save money on your next park visit, you’ve found the right place! We’ve been researching programs for cheap state parks passes for all 50 states.

You might not know that you qualify for State Parks discounts!

I was so surprised when I discovered that my husband’s disability meant we no longer needed to purchase an annual Discover Pass to visit Washington State Parks! I was even more surprised when I found out we could get a free Oregon parks pass, too! With this new discovery, I set out to find out what other disabled veterans (and others) might qualify for in all 50 states!

    There are some people out there who really, really hate what we do here at LowIncomeRelief.com. We've received some very hateful comments from people recently, so we are moderating EVERY comment that appears on our page before it is published publicly.

    Usually, your comment will appear within about 24 hours but sometimes it can take a little longer. Submitting the same comment (or a similar one) over and over again will not speed up this process.

    Comments that are hateful, derogatory or intended to harm anyone will not be published on this site. For your safety, we also delete personal contact information (phone numbers, etc) from the publicly viewable portion of your comment. Our administrators will still be able to see the email address you submit with the form, though.

    I know it's frustrating to wait for your comment to be published. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

    Have a wonderful day and thank you for visiting Low Income Relief!
