Kentucky Promoting State Parks with Passport
The Kentucky State Parks are offering guests a chance at prizes through sales of its new Kentucky State Parks Passport.
The passports are small booklets with a page devoted to each of Kentucky’s 52 state parks, along with other information about the Kentucky Department of Parks and the prizes and rewards that can be earned by visiting each park, according to bizjournals.com.
There are places in the booklet for stamps from each park.
“The Kentucky State Park Passport is a great way for families to remember their trips together,” parks commissioner Gerry van der Meer said in a press release.
Anyone who buys a passport becomes eligible for the grand prize, a one-week stay in a two-bedroom cottage at any park during the 2010 season. Other prizes include a two-night, weekday stay in a lodge room at any park, golf for two and admission for four to any historic home or fort.
Guests who have their passport stamped at state parks are also eligible for rewards. For example, nine camping stays at different parks yields a free night of camping.
The passports are available for $5 at state park gift shops and campgrounds, or online at www.parks.ky.gov.
