Annual Pass Assistance Program
What is the Assistance Program?
The Division of Parks and Recreation and the Department of Health and Social Services have teamed up to create opportunities for every person and family in Delaware to enjoy their state parks. A park entrance fee is charged daily from March 1 through November 30. If you currently receive assistance from a State Service Center, you may be eligible to purchase an annual state park pass for $10. This pass, which is placed on your vehicle’s windshield, allows the vehicle and up to six occupants unlimited entry to the parks during the fee season.*
Who Is Eligible?
Those receiving any of the following types of assistance are eligible for this program:
- Public Assistance
- General Assistance
- Social Security Income
- Food Stamps
- Child Care Assistance Program
What To Do?
Contact your State Service Center to receive a mail-in envelope with an eligibility stamp. Take the envelope to any park office or mail it in with your payment, or bring your “Notice to Continue,” along with photo ID to any state park office. Call your nearest State Service Center for more information about this special program.
*Entry fees for the Brandywine Zoo, Fort Delaware State Park and State Line Beach are not included in this program.
Purchase an Annual Pass
Annual pass stickers allow your vehicle and its occupants to enter most state parks without paying the daily entrance fees (except for the Brandywine Zoo, Fenwick State Line Beach and Fort Delaware State Park ).
