Military families get free admission to state parks, campgrounds

All veterans and Gold Star families will get free entry to New York state parks, campgrounds and historic sites.

It’s all part of Gov. Kathy Hochul’s Lifetime Liberty Pass program.
Gold Star Families are those who have lost a loved one who was serving during a time of conflict.

Veterans can also play at all state-park operated golf courses for free, as well as swim in any pools run by state parks.

Those who have served can get free entry by showing a New York state photo ID with their veteran status designation on it.
