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.
How to Purchase an Annual Pass
In Person: Annual passes may be purchased at the Hartwell Dam and Lake Office Visitor Center or at any staffed campground or day use area gatehouse. Passes are also available at many other Corps lake offices nationwide.
By Phone*: Call the Hartwell Dam & Lake Office Visitor Center at 706-856-0300 or 888-893-0678 and pay by credit card.
*Important: If using a discount pass (America the Beautiful Interagency Senior or Access pass or Golden Age or Access pass) when purchasing your annual pass by phone, you must fax or mail a copy of your discount card.
