What is it?
Many U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recreation areas, including day use parks and boat launching facilities charge fees up to $5 for their use. If you are a frequent user of Corps parks you should consider purchasing an Annual Pass. Annual Passes cost $40 and are accepted nationwide at all Corps managed boat ramps and day use areas. Annual Passes are valid for 12 months. The passes are good at Corps of Engineers operated recreation areas only and do not provide a discount on camping facilities.
"America The Beautiful" Senior and Access Passes also cover any and all day use and boat launching fees, and do not require an additional $40 Annual Pass.
How to Purchase an Annual Pass:
In Person/By Phone: Annual passes may be purchased in person at the Hartwell Project Office or at any of our campgrounds that have staffed gatehouses. However, due to COVID-19 closures, please contact the Hartwell Project Office for office and campground hours at 706-856-0300 or 888-893-0678. Annual passes may also be purchased over the phone with a credit card at these same phone numbers.
