For Peter: This article and pricing is from 2012.

Our family is gearing up for our every two year visit our third favorite Indiana State Park (more on that at a later date). In preparation we purchased our yearly family gift to ourselves, an annual entrance permit to all Indiana State Parks.

The annual pass is $36 and is valid from January 1st to December 31st not matter when you buy it. So, to get the best value for your money, buy it and use it now! One of the best parts is that $36 is probably less than taking your family out to eat one meal and once you have it, you will be encouraged to explore more of our wonderful state! You can buy online or in person at any park entrance gate.

We use ours when we go hiking, take the dog for an exploration trip, go on picnics, bike rides, stay at the inns and go camping. Generally it will cost about $5 for your vehicle to enter a state park, this baby pays for itself in about 6 visits. Look at all of the Indiana State Parks listed below! All of this can be yours!
