  • Senior Pass Cost Increase

    several years ago we purchased a Federal Senior Pass and have used it several times .... per their website ===> https://www.doi.gov/tourists/get-a-pass <=== The Senior Pass covers lifetime admittance to public lands for anyone 62 years or older. Starting on August 28, 2017, the lifetime Senior Pass will increase to $80. Until then, you can purchase the Senior Pass for $10 at any federal recreation site that charges an entrance or standard amenity (day use) fee, or on line .... anyone who qualifies and hasn't purchased a Senior Pass might want to do so before the increase goes into effect

      Wow, just a small percentile increase, huh ? We have been talking about buying one now that we are "Airstreaming". I think you just made my mind up that I need to get over to the Federal park, here in St. Augustine in the next week or so. Thanks for the head's up.

        I just noticed on the official site that all passes will now limit the total number of adults to four. The back of my Golden Age Passport says "...signee and accompanying passengers in in a single private, noncommercial vehicle..."

        I think I will refuse if a Ranger wants to issue a new pass in exchange for my current one!

        I purchased annual passes for over forty years along with a lot of back country camping permits. Therefore, I feel that if I were to decide to take my daughter, 2 sons and Grandson (all adults) for a ride over Trail Ridge, I'm not going to pay a full entry fee for one person.

            We used our Senior Pass 2 years ago at several national parks between Texas and Grand Canyon. Some passed everyone in the truck in on my pass and others limited us to 4 per pass. We had our son and another couple with us. The other couple also had a pass, so we always got in without payment.
