Disability passes National Forest Service and BLM ETC. ?


According to each of the websites I have visited, the disability passes must be applied for in person w/documentation..However, none of these sites have information on where one can do so. COE Was not included in the new legislation and cannot issue ATB Passes but do still honor them at their parks. I must not be finding the correct site to locate an office where I can do this. If you have a suggestion or knowledge on this, please point me in the right direction. These agencies listed below are the the sites I have visited.

National Park Service
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
U.S. Forest Service
Bureau of Land Management

Any national park that collects money can issue the pass. Even though the pass is free. Took my SS letter of award of diability. Only took about ten minutes at Mammouth Cave in Ky.

The rangers there were very efficent. They looked at my doucment, took out a large log book entered the number on the card, and we were good to go.

Didn't even know about the pass until a friendly gate guard at a COE park mentioned it. I will always be greatful to him because of all the money he has saved me.

i just picked mine up at Hot Springs National Park a couple months ago. They only looked at my drivers license to verify disability. Took about 5 minutes.

Now that I have it, what kind of discounts does it provide me other than free admission for me and my passengers into any/all national parks.

My step sister was applying to renew her disabled plate at the DMV. The clerk unexpectedly asked her is she had proof of her disability. The only thing she could think of at the time was to take off her artificial leg and place it on the counter. "Is this sufficient proof?" she asked. She was issued the license plate. Moral of the story, if your disability is obviously visible, like wheeling up in a wheelchair sans limbs, then you may not need a piece of paper when a visual verification will do.

My husband took the letter he had from the VA stating his disability and got his. Wasn't difficult or complicated.
