Purchase KS turkey/park permits by March 30 to save

From Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism

-- 
Visitors to Kansas state parks can save money by purchasing many permits before the prime park season begins on April 1. Permits purchased in the off-season — Oct. 1-March 31 — are valid for the remainder of the calendar year, and they are cheaper if purchased during this period.

Hunters looking for a bargain can find it in the turkey permit/game tag combination, available through March 31 at a reduced price. By purchasing the combination early, hunters save $7.50 over the cost of purchasing each separately after March 30.

For 2012, state park vehicle entrance permit fees include the following:

Off-Season through March 31:  Annual camping permit — $202.50; 14-night camping permit —$87.50; Annual vehicle permit — $19.70 (senior/disabled: $11.10); Prime Season (April 1-Sept. 30); Annual camping permit — $252.50; 14-night camping permit —$101.50; Annual vehicle permit — $24.70 (senior/disabled: $13.60); Turkey Permits
Resident Turkey permit — $22.50; Resident Turkey game tag — $12.50; Resident Turkey Combo permit/game tag — $27.50.

Costs listed include applicable service fees, except online purchase convenience fee. Annual permits are valid for the remainder of the calendar year whether purchased in the off-season or the prime season.

Turkey season for youth and disabled runs April 1 to 10, and the general season runs April 11 through May 31. Each permit or game tag is valid for one turkey. A hunting license is also required, unless exempt by law.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism’s Parks Division operates a system of 26 parks, including the Prairie Spirit Rail-Trail. Most state parks provide utility and primitive camping, as well as cabins, and are located adjacent to lakes or reservoirs.

Most camping and utility fees remain unchanged year-round, but daily, 14-day, and annual camping permits, as well as annual vehicle permits, are cheaper if purchased in the off-season.
