Whether your loved ones enjoy camping outdoors or sleeping in the comfort of one of seven Indiana State Park Inns, we’ve got you covered with a $99 State Park Holiday Gift Pack.

The gift pack includes a 2018 resident Annual Entrance Permit, a one-year subscription to Outdoor Indiana magazine, and one of two $65 gift card options. Choose between a $65 State Park Camp gift card or a $65 Inns gift card. In past years, the gift pack gift card applied only to Inns.

The buyer saves $31 over the regular price of the items purchased separately.

Orders ship within three to five business days. Orders received by Dec. 10 will ship by Dec. 18. The offer is available through Dec. 31.

Indiana has 32 state parks and reservoirs throughout the state. The entrance permit grants gate entrance for all of 2018 for all state parks and reservoirs beginning Jan. 1.

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

The camping gift card can be used at any state park or reservoir campground, as well as at the following DNR Division of Forestry properties: Greene-Sullivan State Forest, Covered Bridge Retreat, and Deam Lake and Starve Hollow state recreation areas. The gift card can be used toward cabins (excluding inns-operated cabins), campsites, cottages, group camps, recreation buildings, rent-a-camp cabins, shelters, and youth & rally camps.

In addition to camping, the camp gift card also may be used to pay for daily or annual entrance fees, lake permits, horse tags, and many other items sold by a state park property, except for those operations run by private concessionaires.

Outdoor Indiana is a bi-monthly magazine that brings you the best of the state’s outdoors in 48 pages of full color. The normal subscription rate is $15 per year. You can learn more about the magazine at
