Kansas State Parks has partnered with the Library District 1, Doniphan County to provide free, daily vehicle permits available for checkout to Kansas library patrons. 

How It Works

Go to a participating library and ask to checkout a Kansas State Parks vehicle Permit.
Each participating family may receive 1 pass per household.
Each issued vehicle permit will be good for one day only, which will be written on the front of the permit.
Park permits do not need to be returned to participating libraries, they can be simply discarded once the patron is done using the permit or when the permit expires.
Patrons using these daily vehicle permits are responsible for displaying the permit in their vehicle windshield when entering the Parks.
For more information about the summer pass go to Kansas Parks website.
