DISTINGUISHED VETERAN PASS
– Terms and Conditions Overview –
The pass is valid unless revoked, at any unit of the California State Park System operated by the California Department of Parks
and Recreation. It is not valid at units operated by federal or local government, private agencies or concessionaires
RESERVATION INFORMATION: Reservations can be made for campsites through ReserveCalifornia™ by calling toll-free at
1-800-444-7275 (TDD 1-800-274-7275), or for Hearst Castle/Año Nuevo tours by calling toll free at 1-800-444-4445.
Pass holders must self-identify as a Distinguished Veteran Pass Holder when making reservations through
ReserveCalifornia™. No priority can be given to pass holders. Visitors reserving accessible campsites are required to possess a
valid Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Disabled Placard or license plate and corresponding identification card issued by DMV.
Disabled veterans possessing a valid disabled veteran's license plate and corresponding identification card issued by DMV also
meet the requirement. All requests for accessible campsites must be made at the time of the reservation.
The pass is issued as a personal benefit to the pass holder only. Pass holder may only hold one lifetime discount pass issued
by California State Parks. The pass holder may not lend, loan, reassign, or resell their pass or the privileges allowed by the
pass to anyone else. The pass is non-transferable and non-refundable, and cannot be used in conjunction with any other pass
and/or discount. A lost or damaged pass may be replaced only through reapplication.
The pass may be used any day of the week, including holidays, if space is available. Space is not assured - use of facilities is
on a "first-come, first-served" basis when space is available, unless reservations are made in advance. The pass is not valid for
special events, commercial or group use or for supplemental fees such as additional motor vehicles, sanitation disposal use, etc.
The pass holder is required to present the Distinguished Veteran Pass (photocopies not accepted) and a valid California Driver
License or California Identification Card showing current California residence address (Interim/temporary not accepted), along
with any campsite reservation or tour ticket, and to pay any supplemental fees at the park.
The pass may be used for family camping. Only the campsite occupied by the pass holder is subject to the discount. Any
subsequent campsites reserved by the pass holder, but not occupied by the pass holder will be charged full price. Making
multiple overlapping reservations using pass holder's discount is not allowed and will place pass in jeopardy of revocation. The
pass is not valid for group campsites. The pass holder must be at check-in even when the campsite is reserved in advance.
Information relating to the 5-year renewal process for the passcard will be provided to the pass holder prior to the expiration of
their current passcard. Pass holder should notify the Park Pass Sales Office of any change of name, address, e-mail address,
or telephone number in order to continue to receive benefits. Pass holder cannot claim multiple state residency for the
purposes of this pass and associated benefits.
The pass may be used for entry of one passenger vehicle with a capacity of nine persons or less where a vehicle day use fee is
collected. (To receive pass benefits at self pay locations, place the pass on the vehicle dashboard where it is visible through the
windshield.) The pass may be used for boating for one vessel associated with this vehicle. When a park requires a "ticket per
person" admittance such as for museums, swimming pools, tours, etc., the discount applies only to the pass holder.
