I’ve recently learned that lifetime passes to America’s national parks for senior citizens and Americans with disabilities are now available through the mail. That’s great news for many PPL Motorhomes Customers!
According to National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis,
“The Senior Pass and the Access Pass will still be available at national parks, “But the option of receiving a pass by mail may better suit some people and any change that makes it more convenient to prepare to come to the parks is a change for the better. We want everyone to experience the amazing places in our care.”
National parks around the country are amazing places to visit! They are places to share with children, grandchildren, and other family members. They not only provide recreation and healthy living there are a lot of parks, including Yellowstone, Shenandoah, and Denali that actually have trails that are accessible to people with limited mobility and to wheelchair users. They also have many accessible camping and picnic areas. This is really important news for Seniors who love their RVs and ar not ready to give up the lifestyle.
The Senior and Access passes provide admission to, and use of, federal recreation sites that charge entrance or standard amenity fees. Pass users also receive a 50 percent discount on some amenity fees for activities like camping and launching a boat. They are available to citizens and permanent residents of the United States age 62 or more or who have permanent disabilities regardless of age.
All you have to do to get your Senior Pass through the mail just submit a completed application, proof of residency and age, and $20. The fee covers the cost of the pass and a document processing fee. Once the application package is received and the documentation verified, the pass will be mailed to you.
The application for the Access Pass is also available here. To receive the Access pass, mail the completed application along with proof of residency and documentation of permanent disability plus the $10 document processing fee. Once the application package is received and verified, the pass and the documentation of permanent disability you provided will be mailed to you.
