New Senior Passes
As of August 28, 2017, the price of the America the Beautiful – National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass has increased to $80. There is also an annual senior pass now available for $20. Each person wishing to purchase a Senior Pass must present a valid ID to show proof of age at time of purchase.
Pipestone National Monument is proud to be part of the Every Kid in a Park program as part of President Obama's commitment to protect our nation's unique outdoor spaces and ensure that every American has the opportunity to visit and enjoy them.
As of September 1, fourth graders nationwide can visit the new Every Kid in a Park website to obtain a pass that provides free access to students and their families to all federally managed lands and waters–including national parks, forests and wildlife refuges. The pass is valid through August 31, 2018 and grants free entry for fourth graders and three accompanying adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks) at more than 2,000 federally-managed sites.
A new National Park Service (NPS) report shows that 67,489 visitors to Pipestone National Monument in 2016 spent $ 3,945,900 in communities near the park. That spending supported 66 jobs in the local area and had a cumulative benefit to the local economy of $5,037,500.
