State Parks and Recreation

Nevada’s state parks represent the best of Nevada, a diverse and unique land with a rich cultural and natural history.  From pristine mountain lakes and extraordinary canyons, to historic forts, ranches, and mining towns, each of Nevada’s state parks has a different story to tell and a different adventure waiting to be discovered.

Nevada State Parks also offers annual permits, including special rates for seniors and disabled veterans.  The Disabled Veteran Permit is an annual permit available to Nevada residents who are honorably discharged veterans with a 0% or more service- connected disability. The permit can be used at Nevada State Parks for 12 months, starting the month of purchase, which is hole-punched on the placard (i.e. hole-punched in March 2014; renew by April 1, 2015). The permit allows the holder free entry, boating and camping. This $30.00 permit can be purchased either in person at the state parks, a local region office or the main headquarters in Carson City or through the mail. To obtain the permit you must have photo identification and copy of your disability form and DD 214 Form verifying you were honorably discharged. The cost is $30.00 in cash, check or credit card (where available).  For additional information visit http://parks.nv.gov/forms/overview-disabled-vets.pdf

An additional fee is required for reservations, special events, boat slip rental, yurt/cabin reservation, utility hook-ups or other special program fees.

There are 27 parks within the Nevada State Park system, for a list of fees by park visit www.parks.nv.gov
