COLUMBUS — 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 Governor Mike DeWine. “Throughout the Buckeye State, in every season, there are state parks waiting to be explored.”
The Ohio State Parks Passport is a must-have for visitors of all ages as they travel and experience the great outdoors at state parks. Printed in full color and with a page for every park, 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 ODNR 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 either online at www.reserveohio.com or at any of Ohio’s state park lodges: Burr Oak, Deer Creek, Geneva, Hueston Woods, Maumee Bay, Punderson, Salt Fork, and Shawnee. The passport will be available in additional state park retail stores as they reopen.
There’s no better time to start checking out all the destinations Ohio State Parks has to offer. Since most Ohioans can reach a state park in less than an hour’s drive, there’s a great experience waiting just around the corner for everyone in every season: birders, hikers, mountain bikers, canoers, kayakers, campers, and more — you can Find It Here. Order your passport today and then hit the road for your next outdoor adventure!
