Default Distinguished Veterans Pass For Ca Parks

FYI for those that are interested. I was told about this pass by a fellow Vet. If you qualify, it's pretty good. I don't use the campgrounds, but I use it at a state beach where I take my dogs. If you are into camping you would probably get even more use out of it. It only took a couple weeks to get it after I sent them a copy of my rating and DD214.

DISTINGUISHED VETERAN PASS - No Fee (Lifetime Pass)

Honorably discharged war veterans who are residents of California with an overall / combined rating at 50% or greater service-connected disability, or were held as prisoners of war by forces hostile to the United States, or recipients of the Medal of Honor are eligible to receive the Distinguished Veteran Pass (formerly Disabled War Veteran/Prisoner of War Pass).

Entitles the holder to the use of all basic facilities (including day use, camping and boating) in California State Parks at no charge. The pass is not valid for group use or sites, special events, commercial use, additional/extra vehicle fees, or for supplemental fees and cannot be used in conjunction with any other pass and/or discount. Admittance and use subject to available space.

They've got a non vet disabled pass too - it's good for 50% off. The Feds also have a program for National Parks. Free pass & admission to the parks and discount on ammenities for disabled. They also have a free pass for current military.
