The Passport booklet for North Carolina State Parks

About the Passport Program

What Is the Passport Program?

The Passport booklet allows visitors to keep track of their state park adventures across the state. Collect a stamp for each park and see if you can get them all!

How Do I Participate?

Pick up a free copy of the Passport book at a state park office or visitor center. Please contact the park beforehand to make sure they have the books available!

Do I Get Any Prizes?

We are no longer offering prizes for the Passport program. However, you are welcome to continue your booklet or pick up a new one to keep track of your park visits or to challenge yourself to visit all of our state parks!

List of Stamps and Locations

The most recent edition of our Passport book has 34 of our currently open-to-the-public state parks included, as well as our four state recreation areas, and three of our state natural areas — Mount Jefferson and Occoneechee Mountain state natural areas and Weymouth Woods Sandhills Nature Preserve.

Rendezvous Mountain, which has transitioned from a state educational forest to a state park, will be included in the next printing.

We also have nine of our state trails included: Deep River, Fonta Flora, French Broad River, Hickory Nut Gorge, Mountains-to-Sea, Northern Peaks, Overmountain Victory, Wilderness Gateway, and Yadkin River state trails.
