Information about the NJ State Park Pass and the New Jersey parks that charge fees from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Some New Jersey parks charge fees from Memorial Day to Labor Day and Island Beach State Park charges year round.

Consider buying the NJ State Park Pass if you visit one (or more) of these parks often. It will save you money over paying per visit. The $50 pass is good for the calendar year and grants entry into any of the parks that charge.

Crunch your numbers: The pass is a good value for most people, but it does depend on how often you visit parks that charge.

For example: a visit to one of these parks on a weekend averages $10, so if you go just 6 times during the season, the pass is a bargain. (It also works as a motivator to get you outside if you’ve paid for a pass!)

If you go less frequently, then it may be more cost effective to pay-per-visit. Free passes are available to those over 62 or are disabled.

How to get a NJ State Park Pass

Passes can be purchased in-person at the park’s office, via a mail-in form, or online using YourPassNow.com
