  • May provide a 50 percent discount on some amenity fees charged for facilities and services such as camping, swimming, boat launch, and specialized interpretive services.
  • Generally does NOT cover or reduce special recreation permit fees or fees charged by concessioners.
I would be interested in any that already have a pass, any problems they have encountered, and I'm sure there are some great stories from those that already have one
got mine in Glacier NP in 2014 Only small problem is if you lose it or forget it and are at a park you have to buy another one since there is no data base
of people who bought the cards
one of the good things about getting older...

$10 lifetime senior pass is best deal around.
It is maybe the 2nd best deal around. As mentioned, disabled get theirs for free. Also, members of the active military and their family can get an annual pass for free. They just need to show their military ID to get the card. And they deserve them! Thank you for your service. DS and his wife got theirs last June (17 years in the CG) and I got my senior pass then too. And don't forget, the passes are for the entire carload, not just the individual.
