From hiking and biking and camping to boating and floating and fishing, there are numerous ways to enjoy the outdoors in Indiana. Once you opt-in for the passport, you’ll use your mobile device to check-in while at an Indiana property (paid admission is still required at State Parks), and it is as simple as that! As you visit more and more properties, we’ll send prizes your way and enter you for drawings to win even more! With the Indiana State Nature Passport giving you rewards for your visits, you might consider an Annual State Park Entrance Permit, which will get you into any of the properties on the passport (except for State Park Inns) all year long! Learn about and buy a State Park Entrance Permit here.
Sign up online for the passport and receive custom prizes for visiting multiple destinations across the state. Visitors need to check-in from a smartphone at one of the designated passport locations. Participants earn more by visiting more locations. Visitors who sign up in the first week of the program (Feb. 22-28) will receive a free Indiana State Nature Passport sticker. After checking in to 10 properties, participants will receive a pair of sunglasses. People who make 25 visits to any of the passport locations will earn a water bottle, and after 40 visits, participants will receive a hat. Check-in to all 59 properties on the passport to earn a backpack.**
Visitors can also qualify for seasonal drawings throughout the year. You will be notified of these opportunities via email, if you are signed up for the passport. Sign up now!
