Due to the incredible demand, Senior Passes are on back order and may not be available at this park site until mid or late-June. Those wishing to obtain a pass in-hand can visit Hopewell Culture National Historical Park in Chillicothe, Ohio (one hour, forty minutes ENE of Cincinnati).

Senior Passes can also be purchased online for a total cost of $20 from the USGS Store.
