Minnesota State Parks Offering First Gift Cards
Minnesota’s Department of Natural Resources is trying to snag a slice of holiday spending with its first-ever gift cards.
The DNR is selling cards of $10 to $1,000 that can be used for state park entrance fees, campsite reservations and rental of equipment like canoes, kayaks and snowshoes, according to Associated Press.
Agency leaders say the cards are beneficial to the state too because it encourages people to invest in the park system.
There are limitations though. The cards can’t be used for hunting, fishing or other licenses or for some concession stand purchases.
Cards can be purchased on the Internet at www.stayatmnparks.com.
