Money-Saving Tips

Library Loan Program

Georgians with public library cards can check out a ParkPass and Historic Site Pass—much like checking out a book. The ParkPass exempts you from paying the daily $5 parking fee at state parks, and the Historic Sites Family Pass exempts up to 2 visitors from admission fees to state historic sites. Visit the Georgia Public Library to find libraries that carry our passes. Plan ahead, as supplies are limited.

Georgia’s State Parks & Historic Sites are committed to making facilities and programs accessible to everyone. All lodges have accessible rooms, meeting facilities and restaurants. Most parks offer accessible cottages, campsites, fishing piers, nature trails and picnic areas. The Will-A-Way Recreation Area at Fort Yargo State Park, operated by Camp Twin Lakes, is a fully accessible group camp accommodating up to 250 people. Since degrees of accessibility vary among the sites, visitors may find it helpful to call the park or historic site they plan to visit to ensure their needs can be met. Overnight guests should be specific about needs when making reservations.
