Lifetime National Park Pass

Now that I'm old enough I think I'm going to get a lifetime, senior National Park Pass before the major price increase by the end of the month. I have no idea when I'll be visiting a NP again but I'd like to have that card in my wallet, just in case....

There are some benefits to aging.

How old do you have to be, and how much is it, roadfix?

There are several small National Parks here that we visit (mostly beaches, or for hiking/canoeing) so I'd like to get one if I qualify.

Shrek has had one since he qualified, it has come in very handy.

Bucky, once you turn 62 you can purchase a National Park Senior Pass for $10 up until August 28.
We got ours as soon as DH turned 62.

I think Bucky has a couple more years to go.

Yup, 10 to be exact. I was hoping it was more like AARP.

Thanks, K-girl.

Yep, 62. I'm going to my local NP office to sign up. It's conveniently located very close to the REI I frequent. I guess you need to go in person for this particular pass, not available on-line.

I've had my senior pass for 8 years, since the summer after I turned 62.

Even after the price increase goes into effect, it's still a great deal. $80 for access to all national parks and most national monuments for the rest of your life is just about the best deal you will find anywhere.
