Free Access to State Parks & Trails

Beginning in October 2008, certain disabled veterans and former Prisoners of War (POW) are eligible to receive waivers of vehicle admittance to state parks. Eligible veterans include disabled veterans with a 70 percent or greater permanent or temporary disability rating by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Also eligible are disabled veterans determined by the federal VA to be totally disabled due to Individual Unemployability (TDIU). A third group of veterans eligible to receive free admission to state parks and use of trails includes former Prisoners of War.

To apply, contact the Kenosha County Veterans Affairs Office (CVSO) at 262-605-6690. You can apply on-line but you must bring the application in to the CVSO for certification.
