The Ohio State Parks Passport, the essential guide to all 75 state parks, is now available.
“Our state parks, all 75 of them, are truly wonderful, unique, and always free to enter,” said Gov. Mike DeWine. “Throughout the Buckeye State, in every season, there are state parks waiting to be explored.”
The Ohio State Parks Passport is designed for visitors of all ages as they travel and experience the great outdoors at state parks. The passport is printed in full color and with a page for every park — many of them in or close to Ottawa County.
The passport includes a full set of custom state park decal stickers that visitors can use to commemorate each new visit. State parks will also feature exclusive ink stamps that park staff can use to mark a visitor’s book each time they visit.
The passport will help visitors plan their trip and learn about the destination, with details on each park’s facilities, contact information, history and fun facts.
“There’s no telling what adventures you’ll have, and there’s only one way to find out,” said Ohio Department of Natural Resources Director Mary Mertz. “This passport will serve as a record and a roadmap for your journey through Ohio’s state parks to remind you of all the great memories and inspire you to make more.”
The Ohio State Parks Passport can be purchased for $10 either online at www.reserveohio.com or at any of Ohio’s state park lodges: Maumee Bay, Burr Oak, Deer Creek, Geneva, Hueston Woods, Punderson, Salt Fork and Shawnee. The passport will be available in additional state park retail stores as they reopen.
