Pass Renewal & Extension Information

Golden Bear and Limited Use Golden Bear Passholders

2022 Golden Bear and 2022 Limited Use Golden Bear pass benefits have been extended through December 31, 2023. There is no action necessary.

The California State Parks staff are aware of the expiration date extension and you may continue to use your existing 2022 pass. 

Disabled Discount and Distinguished Veteran Passholders

All Disabled Discount or Distinguished Veteran pass benefits have been extended for an additional five years and do not require renewal at this time. There is no action necessary.

The California State Parks staff are aware of the expiration date extension and you may continue to use your existing pass.  

The Reserve California camping reservation system has been updated to reflect the pass expiration extension. To receive your benefits, you must make your reservation from the account linked to your pass (verifiable within your account profile). If you experience any issues with receiving your benefits, please email your purchase information to parkpassinfo@parks.ca.gov for assistance.

This extension is a one-time occurrence. Although these are lifetime passes, the California State Parks has renewal requirements to ensure the integrity of the pass program. Future renewal requirements will be shared prior to the next renewal date. The updated schedule is below:
