Your Passport to Idaho State Park Savings!
The Idaho State Parks Passport is a new $10 annual sticker for Idahoans that is available for purchase at the time you register your recreational vehicle (RV) or passenger vehicle, online, by mail-in renewal or at any county DMV office. See below for purchase details.
The Idaho State Parks Passport is valid for either one or two years, and will expire concurrently with your vehicle registration. Passports are assigned to specific vehicles and are not transferrable.
Note: If you’ve already purchased your vehicle registration for this year, you can purchase an Idaho State Park Passport by visiting your county DMV office. ** Please bring the license plate number into the DMV office for the vehicle you intend to purchase the Passport for, at the time of transaction.**
Out-of-state guests will have a savings option too, with the purchase of an Idaho State Park Motor Vehicle Entry Fee (MVEF) Annual. See details below. And, if you're wondering why we're offering this great buy, watch this video.
What Will $10 Buy You and Your Family?
- Admittance to all 30 Idaho State Parks for a year
- Savings on camping (the Passport covers the $5 MVEF charged nightly in addition to camping fees)
- Hundreds of miles of hiking, cycling, mountain biking and Nordic trails
- Your favorite boat launches
- Countless historical and cultural sites within your state parks
Where to Purchase Your Passport
You can purchase your Idaho State Parks Passport online using your Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) issued registration renewal card. The online portal will prompt you to include an additional $10 with your annual registration fees ($20 for a two-year registration) and will calculate your total automatically. Your Passport will be sent by mail with your vehicle registration stickers.
Purchase By Mail
You can purchase your Idaho State Parks Passport by mail, using your Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) issued registration renewal card. Simply include an additional $10 with your annual registration fees in your payment to ITD (please include an additional $20 for a two-year registration). It's a good idea to write "Includes Park Passport" on the memo line in the lower left hand corner of your check. Your Passport will be sent by mail with your vehicle registration stickers.
Purchase At Your Local DMV Office
You can purchase your Idaho State Parks Passport at any County DMV Office in Idaho, in conjunction with your vehicle registration or on its own. Provide your license plate number for easy customer look-up.
If You Already Renewed Your Vehicle Registration
You can still get a Passport to cover the remaining time on your vehicle registration. You will need to take your license plate number to your DMV and tell the clerk you'd like a State Parks Passport. If you have less than a year left on your registration, the cost will be $10. If you have more than a year left (you purchased a two-year registration), the cost will be $20. Sorry, but the system won't let us pro-rate the stickers. The next time you register, though, you'll be caught up and get a full year for $10, or two full years for $20.
