How to use your Passport
New Jersey’s state parks, forests and historic sites are a fantastic way to explore the Garden State. The Passport to Adventure highlights a sampling of New Jersey’s natural and cultural wonders. Use you passport to discover more about the parks and historic sites near your home and throughout the state. Record your experiences along the way. You don’t have to be a kid to participate. (We won’t tell.)
1) Ask for a passport when you visit a state park, forest or historic site. There is no charge for the Passport. *
2) When you visit a state park, forest or historic site listed in the Passport, be sure to ask for your official passport sticker to place in your book. Each sticker is unique and represents a significant feature of the area.
Depending upon the facilities available at each site, the sticker will be available at a variety of locations. Stickers are only available during regular park hours. Historic sites are typically closed on Monday and Tuesday. Since hours may vary from area to area, it’s always a good idea to call prior to your visit.
3) Visit often and take your Passport with you!
*Note: The Passport does not provide free entrance into New Jersey’s state parks, forests or historic sites, nor does it guarantee entry when facilities are filled to capacity, closed or for special events. Daily entrance fees and annual passes are sold at each individual area.
Note: The Steuben House historic site is currently closed. Stickers are available at Ringwood State Park or you can request one through the State Park Service headquarters at (800) 843-6420 or (609) 984-0370.
