Default SC State Park Annual Pass

I am close to Huntington Beach State Park so I gladly paid $50 for an annual entry/parking pass. It is good until 4/2010. While I still consider $50 a bargain, I have heard that the pass can be purchased cheaper at library branches or the like. Is that true?

If you're a resident of Georgetown County, you can purchase it at a discount at the Parks & Recreation office in East Bay Park, Georgetown. The discount used to be quite a bit more, but I think the current price is $35 for the annual pass.

I think it depends on if you are talking about an individual pass or a family pass.......Don't feel like you paid too much until you know the facts. I doubt the state parks are trying to start a bidding war or anything!

$50 is the fee for a SC Park Pass if you don't have an SC drivers license (ie. a legal residence in SC). $35 is the instate fee at any public library. I'm not sure, but I believe it's a couple of bucks cheaper for seniors (65 and over). Senior passes must be purchased at the park entrance. In any case it's a good deal.

The annual pass is good for everybody in the vehicle, or if on bikes, everybody in the group. I don't think they sell individual passes.

Thanks for the replies.

While $15 to $20 is hardly worth the effort of cheating, and I might have an SC DL by 4/2010 (when my pass expires), I wonder if I could just have one of my neighbor friends get my one with their SC drivers license?

Also, I purchased a pass to Brookgreen Gardens a couple visits ago. It seemed pricey (it allowed entry for a week I believe), but worth it. Are there any deals for long term passes to the Gardens?

Regarding Huntington, there is nothing that ties the annual pass to the purchaser. If you show a current pass, the gate attendant will wave you on. Also, I don't think there is any limit on the number of passes you can purchase. In past years when they were cheaper, we bought two of 'em and kept one in each car.

Brookgreen sells annual individual($60) and family($90) memberships, which include park entry along with a few other bennies. All of these are name-specific, and entrance requires your membership card and photo ID, although I have rarely been asked for an ID. Details (http://www.brookgreen.org/join-join.cfm - broken link)
