LOVEWELL STATE PARK FREE ENTRANCE DAYS MARCH 26-27
Open house featuring new facilities, cabin tours to highlight weekend
WEBBER — Lovewell State Park will hold Free Park Entrance Days on Saturday and Sunday, March 26 and 27. For these two days, vehicle permits are not required to enter the state park. However, park users are reminded that if they plan to camp overnight, a camping permit is still required and can be purchased at the park office or self-pay station
To enhance this special weekend, park staff will present an open house featuring the park’s new facilities and camping cabins, as well as information on budget issues, the campsite reservation system, and a question-and-answer time regarding park regulations. Two programs will begin at the Willow Group Shelter at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The programs will conclude with tours of the new Southwinds Camping Cabins, weather permitting.
In addition to the programs, the park office will be open both days from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for park permit sales prior to the switch to peak season pricing on April 1. Off-season Annual Vehicle permits are discounted $5 at $19.70; Second Annual Vehicle permits are discounted $2.50 at $12.20; Annual Camping permits are discounted $50 at $202.50; and the 14-Day Camping permits are discounted $15 at $87.50. Those purchasing annual and second vehicle permits must present vehicle registration.
