DEC Implements General ADK Park User Fee

The ADK Park Permit is like a fishing license or ski mountain pass and has to be carried at all times when using trails, camping, etc. Residents don't need it, their drivers license or school ID serve the same purpose. The general user fee income will be used for visitor marketing, operations, and maintenance. It can be purchased from many shops in the Park and online as well.
