What’s the Freebie?
Summer’s just around the corner, school is almost out, and now is the time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors with your kids. And now that people with permanent disabilities can enjoy federal recreation sites for FREE, there really is no excuse.
Here’s How It Works:
When you visit a federal recreation site, present some documentation of disability status and ask for the FREE Access Pass. Documentation can include:
— Statement by a licensed physician
— Document issued by Federal agency, such as the Veteran’s Administration, Social Security Disability Income, or Supplemental Security Income
— Document issued by a State agency, such as a vocational rehabilitation agency
About the Access Pass
The Access Pass is a FREE, lifetime pass available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States that have been medically determined to have a permanent disability, which provides access to more than 2,000 recreation sites. At many sites the Access Pass provides the pass owner a discount on Expanded Amenity Fees (such as camping, swimming, boat launching, and guided tours).
The Access Pass will admit the passholder and passengers in a non-commercial vehicle at per-vehicle fee areas, and will admit the passholder and 3 adults (not to exceed 4 adults total) where per-person fees are charged. (NOTE: Children under 16 are always admitted free.) Visit the USGS website for more information on the Access Pass.
For more details on this FREE pass offer, visit the National Park Service’s Website and scroll down to “Access Pass.” To find a recreation site, use the U.S. National Park Service Park Locator online.
