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.
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.
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.
Our out-of-state guests have savings options too! You can purchase a $40 Motor Vehicle Entry Fee (MVEF) Annual and receive access to all of Idaho's State Parks and nightly discounts on camping. MVEF Annuals can be purchased at any Idaho State Park and online.
