Buy a Corps of Engineers Annual Park Pass [2023]

The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) operates 13 day-use parks with beaches on Lake Lanier’s almost 700-miles of shoreline.  You can either pay $5.00 per visit, or purchase an annual park pass to save money.

The daily $5.00 fee to enter USACE parks allows you to launch a boat, walk in the park or practice your favorite art until the sun goes down.

Who knew there were so many varieties of annual park passes?

If our friends at the USACE’s Lake Lanier Management Office have the particular type of pass you want in stock, you can purchase one by mail, or over the phone if you use a credit card.  Cash is not accepted at the office.

The $40 USACE annual pass is what most of us need.  That allows unlimited visits to all Army Corps of Engineers parks nationwide for a year.

Senior citizens may buy annual or lifetime passes to USACE parks nationwide.  The America the Beautiful passes provide access to National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands.

    Hi Robert,
    You write that seniors can get a senior pass, but don’t mention the age that senior starts. It seems to be different at different places,
    also if I got a senior America The Beautiful Pass, does that mean it includes USACE Lake Lanier access? Or do I have to buy both to get access to USACE at Lake Lanier parks
    Thanks, Claire

    I just paid $40 for annual pass for Lake Lanier park on September 25, 2019. It was NOT any sign or notice that park is going to be closed. However, I came already twice, September 29 and 30, the park was closed with sign “ Closed for season” When Lake Lanier park will be open? If the park will be closed in the end of 2019 how can I get refund?
