Annual vehicle admission stickers and state trail passes for 2013 are now available for purchase at state park facilities and Department of Natural Resources service centers statewide.
The vehicle admission stickers provide access to more than 60 state park, forest and recreation area properties across Wisconsin. The stickers are required on all motor vehicles stopping in state parks and recreation areas. Some state forest and trail parking areas also require a sticker.
A state trail pass is required for all people age 16 or older biking, in-line skating, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, or off-highway motorcycling on certain state trails. A state trail pass is not required for walking or hiking.
Admission stickers cost $25 for Wisconsin residents or $35 for nonresidents, the same as last year. A family with more than one vehicle registered to the same household may purchase additional state park stickers at half price. A senior citizen annual sticker for $10 is available for Wisconsin residents 65 years of age and older. Annual trail passes are $20 for residents and nonresidents.
In addition to park, forest and trail offices and DNR service centers, stickers and trail passes are available over the phone from the DNR call center. Phone customers may call the DNR at (888) 936-7463 between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Visa and MasterCard are accepted.
The Friends of Wisconsin State Parks also offers online sales of admission stickers and trail passes with a donation to the statewide friends group through the organization’s website, fwsp.org.
