Looking for a great, affordable option for visiting Arizona State Parks?

The annual day use pass allows access for up to four people to state parks across Arizona. Use your pass to continuously enjoy your favorite local state park or explore parks throughout the state. A day use pass opens the door to exploring every corner of amazing Arizona — perhaps experiencing a different location each weekend. History lovers can explore the stories of the past at the state historic museums. We offer a standard pass for weekday use at all parks, including weekends at many parks. The premium pass includes weekend and holiday access to the parks along the Colorado River (Buckskin Mountain, Cattail Cove, Lake Havasu and River Island), as well as Patagonia Lake and Slide Rock State Parks. Boyce Thompson Arboretum is not included in either annual park pass. Plus, with every purchase of an Arizona State Parks & Trails annual pass, visitors will receive a free year-long subscription to Arizona Highways magazine.

You can purchase your park pass online and have it mailed to your home, or pick one up in our parks (except Boyce Thompson Arboretum and Colorado River, McFarland, Riordan Mansion, Tubac Presidio, and Yuma Territorial Prison state historic parks).
