Thank you for subscribing to the Do It Yourself RV newsletter, keep your eye on your inbox for updates.

The catch? Well, you have to obtain the pass in person at a Federal recreation site that charges an entrance fee, so that might entail some driving if you don’t happen to live close to a Federal recreation area.

You can call 1-888-ASK-USGS and press 3. (888-275-8747, option 3) or email fedrecpass (at) usgs.gov to determine which park is closest to you.

Normally this annual pass costs the public $80, so it could be a good deal if you like to do a lot of camping and you’re in the military.
