Real Florida Reader State Park Passes

The Real Florida Reader State Park Pass is a summer-long program for patrons of Florida’s public libraries.

The Real Florida Reader State Park Pass allows single day-use entry for a single passenger vehicle (up to eight people).

The passes are accepted at all Florida State Parks except Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs, Skyway Fishing Pier, and Weeki Wachee Springs State Parks.

The passes are valid between May 21 and September 12, 2022.

Availability is limited. Each Florida library has two Florida State Park Day Passes to check out to patrons during the program period. Passes need to be checked out and returned at the same library location.
