The Golden Age Pass is good for free entry (cardholders only) into all State Parks that have service charges to enter. NOTE: Some areas utilize coin-operated gates during the off season that cannot be opened with this card.

This pass is valid for half price camping, Sunday through Thursday (excluding holidays), but cannot be used for rentals or other facility use service charges that may apply. The boat launch fee at Maryland State Parks is eliminated for seniors who possess a Golden Age Pass.
