Upon arrival, state park visitors pay a parking fee that helps fund campground renovations, group shelter construction, dock replacements and much more. Currently, the daily fee is $3. The daily ParkPass is valid at all state parks visited the same day, and overnight guests pay only one fee for the duration of their stay. The only exception is Tallulah Gorge State Park, which charges $4.

The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Areas, Stone Mountain, Corps of Engineers lakes, Jekyll Island and Lake Lanier are not state parks, therefore, they are not covered by the ParkPass.
