People looking for a holiday gift that keeps giving throughout the year can give outdoor enthusiasts access to some of the most scenic areas found in Wisconsin that offer thousands of miles of trails, hundreds of nature hiking opportunities and dozens of beaches, with a 2017 Wisconsin state park admission sticker or state trail pass. The 2017 stickers and state trails passes went on sale Dec. 1 at state park facilities and Department of Natural Resources service centers statewide. State park properties will honor 2017 stickers and passes for admission to parks, forests, recreation areas and trails beginning Dec. 1, 2016. The admission stickers are designed by high school students and the winning design is chosen in a statewide contest. The winning 2017 admission sticker was designed by Emily Olson, a senior at Cedarburg High School. Annual admission stickers cost $28 for Wisconsin residents or $38 for nonresidents. If there is more than one vehicle registered to the same household, additional state park stickers are available for $15.50 for residents and $20.50 for nonresidents. A senior citizen annual sticker for $13 is available for Wisconsin residents 65 years of age and older. Annual trail passes are $25 for residents and nonresidents. Customers can call the DNR at 888.936.7463 between 7 am and 10 pm. Visa and MasterCard are accepted. Customers need to order stickers and passes by Dec. 16, to receive them for the holidays. The Friends of Wisconsin State Parks also offer online sales of admission stickers and trail passes with a donation to the statewide friends group through the organization’s website fwsp.org.
