Holiday gift-giving made easier by Virginia State Parks

(RICHMOND) - Holiday gift-giving is easier with the natural choice of gifts from Virginia State Parks. Managed by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, Virginia State Parks offer a wide assortment of gift ideas for the whole family.

Several types of annual Virginia State Park passes can satisfy the most ardent outdoor enthusiast as well as the occasional visitor.

The Naturally Yours Passport Plus, ($55), covers admission to all state parks, discounts on camping and state park merchandise as well as special offers. The Naturally Yours Parking Passport, ($33), covers parking and admission for one park of your choice. The Naturally Yours Passport Plus for boaters, ($138), is good for boat launching at all Virginia State Parks as well as all the benefits of the Naturally Yours Passport. Another pass is available for boat launch and parking at a single park.

For seniors, the Senior Lifetime Naturally Yours Passport Plus, ($100), offers the benefits of the standard passport plus, but it's a lifetime pass. Other similar passes are available for seniors.

Operators in the Virginia State Parks Reservations Center can help you purchase state park gift certificates, which can be used for camping, cabin rentals, and equipment rentals in any park. They can also provide a list of park gift shops that remain open for last minute gift ideas and unique stocking stuffers. Call the Reservations Center at 1-800-933-PARK for help with your gift giving needs. For more Virginia State Parks information, visit
