Minnesota state parks offering gift cards

Just in time for the holiday shopping season opener, Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Commissioner Mark Holsten unveiled the new Minnesota state parks gift card today at Fort Snelling State Park.

“The gift card is another way to help people connect to Minnesota’s great outdoors,” Holsten said. “We’re billing it as the ‘gift that goes all out,’ because it can be used for camping, lodging, and vehicle permits, as well as the clothing, books, and other items sold at Minnesota state parks.

“Ideally, we think people will give Minnesota state parks gift cards to their children or grandchildren with a promise to take them fishing or canoeing or snowshoeing. The memories of spending time together will last a lifetime, and the experience will help introduce the next generation to the fun of outdoor recreation.”

The gift card - which features a photo of the state’s highest waterfall, the main attraction at Grand Portage State Park in northeastern Minnesota - went on sale today and can be purchased any of three ways:

* By phone at: 1-866-85PARKS
* Online at: stayatmnparks.com
* In person at Minnesota state parks.
