State Park and Historic Site Passes

The State Park and Historic Site Passes Program allows library patrons to check-out passes directly from their local library. These passes allow for free admission of one car holding up to eight people into a Vermont State Park or Vermont Historical Site.

Local public libraries are provided in the spring with one each of a State Park pass and State Historic Site pass.

Damaged Passes

If a pass has been damaged or lost by the library you may order one additional replacement pass from the Department of Libraries. The damaged pass should be destroyed. 

If a library patron has borrowed and not returned a pass you should follow your library's policies for billing and replacement. The Department of Libraries has provided a sample policy for you to fill out and use when drafting your own policy.


Please keep use statistics for the pass program. You will be required to submit a paper statistics form OR an online form by November 30, 2018.

The program has been jointly sponsored the Department of Libraries, the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks & Recreation and the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation. Our co-sponsors have asked us to provide circulation statistics at the end of the season. The statistics may also encourage other state agencies to participate with Vermont libraries.
