STAFFORD, NJ - There is only five days left to purchase a lifetime Senior Pass for $10 for use at national parks and recreation sites.  On Monday, Aug. 28th the price will increase to $80.

This is the first cost increase since 1994, and is a result of legislation passed by the U.S. Congress on Dec. 16, 2016.

U.S. citizens age 62 years or older are eligible for the Senior Pass.  Lifetime passes purchased at the $10 level will remain valid, and the benefits, which include access to over 2,000 recreation sites, will not change.

You can purchase a Senior Pass at any federal recreation site that charges an entrance or standard amenity (day-use) fee. Proof of age and residency is required.  The revenue from Senior Passes will go to a National Park Foundation Endowment and a National Park Centennial Challenge Fund. 

In New Jersey, there are four sites where you can buy one:

Passes can also be purchased online or by mail.  Mail orders postmarked before Aug. 28th will be processed at the $10 price.  Those postmarked after that date will be processed at the $80 price. Additional processing fees of $10 apply.
