Fees & Reservations
As of November 16, 2009 George Rogers Clark National Historical Park (NHP) is a fee free site. Come enjoy all the park has to offer completely free of charge.
As a result of being a fee-free park, George Rogers Clark NHP no longer sells the America the Beautiful National Park passes.
The nearest locations to purchase these passes are Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial, in Lincoln City, Indiana (www.nps.gov/libo), and Hoosier National Forest in Bedford, Indiana (www.fs.usda.gov/hoosier). Both are approximately 70 miles from Vincennes. Passes can also be purchased on your next visit to a national park.
School group visits are a great way to build on lessons learned in the classroom. For more information about what a school visit involves, click here. All group visits are scheduled through the Vincennes/Knox County Convention and Visitor Bureau (CVB). The CVB may be contacted by calling 1-800-886-6443 or by visiting their website.
Weddings and other special park uses require a special use permit. The permit must be obtained through the park Superintendent prior to the actual event. (information about special use permits)
