2010 Annual Day Use & Boat Launch Decals Now AvailableOc
(Anchorage, AK) - Alaska State Parks 2010 Annual Day Use and Boat Launch Decals are now available for purchase in person at the Anchorage Public Information Center (PIC), 550 West 7th Ave., Suite 1260. Customers may also purchase the 2010 decals on line at www.alaskastateparks.org and then click on the sample decals to be taken to our secure site.
Park decals are valid for a calendar year, from January 1 through December 31. However, 2010 decals will be honored for the remainder of 2009, providing up to 14 months of recreational opportunities within the Alaska State Park system.
Over the past year, on-line annual pass purchasers requested a “temporary pass” that could be used while they were waiting for their pass to be sent by mail. In response to this request, the receipt provided with all on-line annual pass purchases may be used as a temporary pass for up to 10 days following the receipt date.
Alaska State Parks issues a camping pass to Alaskan Veterans with a service-connected disability. The 2009-2010 camping passes are also available at the PIC. In order to receive a pass, Veterans must provide proof of at least one year of Alaska residency and present a Veteran’s Universal Access card with “service connected disability” printed under their photograph, or a current year letter stating the veteran’s disability rating.
Day Use Decals are $40. Two Day Use Decals may be purchased for $60 when purchasing the decals for the same household with the same address. Boat Launch Decals are $75, but two decals may be purchased for $115 when purchased for the same household. Third and subsequent decals are $40 for Day Use and $75 for Boat Launch. A set of Day Use and Boat Launch decals may be purchased as a “combo set” for $100. All decals must be permanently affixed and are not transferable.
