Things To Do > Get Your Passport Stamped

What is the passport program?

Through the Passport to Your National Parks© program, coordinated by Eastern National, a National Park Service partner, you can collect free cancellation stamps (shown at right) at cancellation stations in national parks and NPS-affiliated areas nationwide. Stamp pads and stamps are usually located in a park or area's visitor centers, gift shops, or headquarters, and you can collect your stamps in a special spiral-bound passport. There are hundreds of stamps to collect. There are also clubs around the country that host websites, blogs and events that add an element of competition and storytelling to the fun of stamp-collecting.

To order a spiral-bound passport cancellation stamp book (shown at right) from the Eastern National Online Bookstore, call toll free 877-NAT-PARK (628-7275) or visit the website.
