Indiana DNR Holiday Gift Packs Available for Limited Time

Cross those hard-to-buy-for people off your shopping list in a snap by giving them a 2024 holiday gift pack from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

The gift packs, with only a limited quantity available, can be used the whole year, whether the recipient enjoys camping under the stars or sleeping in the comfort of an Indiana State Park Inn after enjoying the outdoors. The gift pack also saves you as much as $31 compared with buying the items individually.

The $99 gift pack includes a 2024 resident annual entrance pass to Indiana State Park properties, a one-year subscription to Outdoor Indiana magazine (six issues), and one of two $65 gift card options. One gift card option can be used at the campgrounds, while the other is for State Park Inns. You also have the option of upgrading either to $100 by paying $35 more.

Indiana has 36 state park properties throughout the state. The annual entrance pass grants gate entrance (a carload) for 2024 to all state park properties beginning Jan. 1.

The inns gift card can be used at any State Park Inn, as well as at the award-winning Pete Dye-designed golf course at Fort Harrison State Park in Indianapolis. The card can also be used for lodging, meals in the dining rooms, or gift purchases.

The camping gift card can be used toward the rental of campsites, cottages, group camps, recreation buildings, rent-a-camp cabins, shelters, youth and rally camps, and cabins (excluding inns-operated cabins). The camping gift card may also be used to purchase daily entrance, lake permits, horse tags, and any other items sold at gatehouses and park-operated stores and gift shops. The camping gift card cannot be used at any privately operated concessions, camp stores, marinas, or saddle barns.

The offer is available through Dec. 31, 2023, or when sold out. Gift packs can be purchased only at shopINStateParks.com.
