Discount Passes

The Corps of Engineers accepts the Golden Age and Golden Access passports and the America the Beautiful Senior and Access passes as valid for discounts for camping fees. No other documentation will be accepted as proof of age or disability for the purpose of receiving discounts at Corps of Engineers parks.

As of January 1, 2007 the Corps is no longer issuing any Golden Age or Golden Access passports. Existing passports may still be used until they are lost, defaced or stolen. Individuals wanting replacements for America the Beautiful passes must obtain one from a participating federal agency (Forest Service, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Managment, and the Bureau of Reclamation).

Annual Passes entitle holders to the use of any Corps of Engineers operated boat launching ramps or swimming beaches at any project for a calendar year. The cost is $30.00 and a duplicate pass may be purchased for a second family vehicle for $15.00.  The Annual Pass admits the holder and any accompanying passengers in a private vehicle. The Annual Pass does not cover or reduce special recreation permit fees or fees charged by concessionaires. Annual passes are sold at the Lake O' the Pines Office and all local area Corps park gates.  They also may be purchased at most other U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lakes.
