National Park Passport Stamps

The park's Junior Ranger and National Park Passport Cancellation stamps are kept in the brick ranger office beside the Overlook Park parking lot at 72 McBride Avenue Extension, Paterson, NJ, 07501. Ranger availability varies seasonally - for up-to-date information check our hours and operations. Weather and staff permitting, the stamp can be found at the orientation table in Overlook Park near the Alexander Hamilton Statue - otherwise, knock on the ranger office door. For additional assistance, you can contact the park.

In addition, Paterson is home to the Huntoon-Van Rensalier site, a nationally designated National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom site. Paterson Great Falls retains the passport stamp for this nearby location.

The Passport program was started by Eastern National Parks Association in 1986 and was established to help visitors discover the beauty and history found in America's national parks. Cancellation stamps can be found at national parks and monuments. These rubber-stamp ink markings record the name of the park and the date of your visit.

Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park was the Mid-Atlantic Region stamp on the 2013 Passport Stamp set, as photographed by Eastern National Photo Contest winner Adali Rosario.
