BISMARCK, ND – North Dakota State Park annual permit holders will find a new option available to them this year. During the 67th Legislative Assembly, a bill was passed to allow members of the same household to buy two annual permits at a discounted price. This new option, the family permit, is now available for $55.
The 2022 annual permits went on sale November 1 and feature Lake Metigoshe State Park, as the park celebrates its 85th anniversary in 2022. Lake Metigoshe State Park is located near Bottineau and is home to a variety of historical and natural features. One of those includes the state’s first nationally recognized trail, the Old Oak Trail.
The North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department’s 2022 annual permit offers visitors access to all 13 state parks from the time of purchase through April 30, 2023. Permits can be purchased online at travel.parkrecnd.com. The single vehicle annual permit price remains unchanged at $35. Discounted annual permits are also available for North Dakota seniors, eligible disabled veterans and prisoners of war. Permits can be purchased in person or online. https://www.parkrec.nd.gov/stay/dailyannual-permits for more information.
Additionally, the department would like visitors to know they have moved their headquarters from the Century Avenue location in Bismarck to the Capitol grounds. The new office is located on the second floor of the Liberty Memorial Building at 604 E Boulevard Ave in Bismarck. Although the physical address has changed, all other contact information for the agency remains the same.
The mission of the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department is to offer a diversity of recreation opportunities and sustainably manage resources.
