Park Passport Stamps

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. There are four stamps availble for the National Parks passort and the Junior Ranger passport books.
