Disabled Veteran's Annual Camping Pass
The legislature granted Disabled Veterans (DAV) the right to receive one Alaska State Park Camping Pass free of charge (AS 41.21.026(d)). The DAV Camping Pass, which is valid in all developed Alaska State Park campgrounds, is good for two years. There is no DAV pass for boat launch or day use, nor can the DAV camping pass be used to purchase a boat launch or day use pass.
To receive a free DAV camping pass, an eligible disabled veteran must normally present, in person, proof of a service connected disability at either the Anchorage or Fairbanks DNR Public Information Centers (see below). Due to the risk of COVID-19 exposure, if you received a 2019-2020 DAV decal, it will be honored through December 2021. If you do not have a 2019-2020 decal, please contact the Public Information Center at 907-269-8400 or email@example.com for information on how to request a DAV camping pass.
The Disabled Veteran camping pass is non-transferable. If the qualified DAV's vehicle is sold, the decal must be removed. Or, if the windshield is broken and must be replaced, the individual is requested to scrape as much of the decal off as possible and return the remains to any area office. In either of these cases, a replacement decal will be issued for $10 upon receipt of the removed decal. If the decal is lost or if no remains of a previous decal can be produced, and the DNR has record of the owner's previous issuance of the DAV decal, a one-time replacement decal may be purchased for $100.
For further information, please contact the Anchorage or Fairbanks Public Information Center.
