Description:
Places where you can obtain collectible stamps, cancellations, or other proof-of-visitation from state, provincial, municipal or non-profit parks or protected areas.

20 States/provinces represented so far: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Kansas, Maine, Manitoba, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Expanded Description:

Several park, protected area, and cultural identity systems maintain programs similar to the United States NPS's "Passport to your National Parks," where visitors can log their visits by stamping a special booklet, like travellers log entry to a country in an international passport. Other systems maintain similar visit-and-collect programs with proof-of-visitation other than stamps. Implementation differs from program to program, but the goal of the activity in each place is the same: for visitors to collect unique stamps/sticker/rubbings/whatever by visiting a particular place within a park, protected area, or cultural identity system.

Waymarks in this category must:

  1. be the sole location where proof-of-visitation can be acquired
  2. be part of a system of similar locations (typically more than five) intended for collectors
  3. be sanctioned by the park, protected area, or cultural location manager
  4. provide tangible evidence of a visit (such as a stamp or cancellation)

Example 1: The ideal waymark is a visitor center at a state park that has a unique stamp representing that park, which is intended to be stamped in a booklet alongside other such stamps at other parks in the system.

Example 2: A park store where you can buy a hat pin commemorating that park would not be eligible, unless that park is the ONLY place the pin could be purchased (thereby proving visitation), there are several other pins commemorating other parks (demonstrating that it is part of a system), and the other pins could only be purchased at their respective locations.

In the case of very large or geographically remote facilities, there may need to be more than one cancellation station, or the station may need to be located off-site. Potential waymarks with these or other extenuating characteristics will be taken on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the category managers with any questions.

Examples of Passport or other systematic programs include the following:

Instructions for Posting a State Park Passport Locations Waymark:
Find the place where you can go to receive proof-of-visitation from a particular park or protected area. You can use coordinates for either the precise location of the cancellation station or the location of an office where one can get instructions, but please specify in your description which you use.

Add a photo or official image of the stamps/sticker/rubbings/whatever as the default photo. An additional photograph to establish context (a photo of the cancellation station or a photo of what makes the location unique) would be appreciated.

Please provide information about registration, passport purchase, or other first steps needed for full participation.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
No special instructions, but a picture of yourself or of something unique to that place would be a nice touch.

This is an amazing place to visit. The history is astounding. State employees wear period uniforms and they are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. This is one of the few parks that is both recreational and unbelievably educational.

Inside the visitor center/museum are two stamps, one for here featuring the monument the park is named after and another for the South Mountain site, the location of the park. The second didn't work so well.
