One of the best ways for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) park visitors to save money is to invest in an annual pass.

USACE operates 32 day-parks in our area, including Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona.

You can choose to cough up $4.00 per day per vehicle to enter USACE day-use areas or simply pay $30 for the entire year.

Having the annual pass gives you the peace of mind to visit often … without worrying about spending a lot of time to make it worthwhile.

The passes are valid for 12 months and available as hanging tags, which can be used in all your vehicles, or as a sticker, for use in Jeeps, convertibles and on motorcycles.

The passes are good at all USACE operated day-use parks nationwide, including these local venues:

  • Lake Lanier
  • Lake Allatoona Lake
  • Carters Lake
  • West Point Lake
  • Hartwell Lake
  • Richard B. Russell Lake and
  • Thurmond Lake.

How to Get Your Annual Pass

By Mail

  • Checks for $30 made out to NRRS may be mailed to:

  • PO Box 487, Cartersville, GA  30120
