Day-use parking pass sale thru Dec. 31 (2013)

$25 for one-year day-use parking permit

December is  “good deal” month at Oregon State Parks. From Dec. 1-31, visitors and gift-givers can save $5 on the 12-month day-use parking permit. Parking fees are required at 26 Oregon state parks, and cost $5 per day, unless you have a 12 or 24-month pass. The 12-month pass is on sale for $25 – regularly $30 – in December.

“This makes a great gift,” said Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) spokesman Chris Havel. “And with $5 off, it’s also a big bargain.” The permits are transferable  from vehicle to vehicle, making them a versatile value in today’s economy. OPRD also offers a 24-month pass, priced at $50, that Havel said is “always a good deal.”

The Oregon Coast Passport is also discounted $5 in December. The passport is a multi-agency product, valid at Oregon State Parks, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service sites along the Oregon Coast. The coastal passports are on sale for $30–regularly $35–in December.

The 12- and 24-month OPRD permits, coastal passports and OPRD gift certificates can be purchased  by calling the Oregon State Parks Information Center, 1-800-551-6949. Callers may use debit or credit cards that have VISA or MasterCard logos.

Walk-in customers can buy the OPRD permits at major OPRD offices, some state park friends’ group stores and selected local businesses throughout the state. Permits are also available from vendors statewide. The coastal passports are sold at some coastal state parks, federal agency offices and local vendors in several coastal communities.
