distinguished veterans park pass

August 10, 2017 - By Steven Wilson - Ready for Red Rock? Cruising to Crystal Cove? Eager for Emerald Bay? Hankering for Humboldt Lagoons? If you’re an honorably discharged war veteran with a 50% or greater service-connected disability rating, or a former POW or Medal of Honor recipient, there’s a new way for you to visit each of California’s 118 state parks.

The California Department of Parks and Recreation’s Distinguished Veteran Pass recently underwent modernization as part of its transition to California’s new reservation system: ReserveCalifornia. It has a credit card design and some slightly revised policies.

The pass entitles the holder to the use of all basic facilities, including day use, camping and boating, in California state parks at no charge.

The pass is not valid for group use or sites, special events, commercial use, additional/extra vehicle fees, or for supplemental fees, and it cannot be used in conjunction with any other pass and/or discount.

Visit our CalVet Veterans Services Division webpage for more information about how to apply for a Distinguished Veteran Pass. Current pass holders are asked to visit one of 47 designated state park locations to work with department staff to create a new online profile and exchange their current pass for the new credit card design pass.

Individuals may use their current pass for walk-up (first-come, first-serve) camping and day use through February 28, 2018. Old passes will not be valid after these dates. Admittance and use are subject to available space.  For complete Distinguished Veteran Pass Program terms and conditions, click here.

NOTE: Current veteran or disabled pass holders will need new passes for camping reservations after August 1.
