State Parks passes available for checkout again through Clemson Libraries

Clemson Libraries has extended its partnership with the South Carolina State Parks system for another year, making State Parks Passes available for checkout through December 2025.

Twenty passes are available for free admission to all 47 state parks across South Carolina. Sixteen of the passes are available at the services desk at Cooper Library, three are available at the CU-ICAR branch library in Greenville and one is available at the Clemson Design Center Library in Charleston.

The program has been a great success since it launched in October 2021, with passes checked out more than 200 times over the past year. Table Rock, Paris Mountain and Devil’s Fork were the most popular destinations. Patrons used the passes to visit 26 different state parks last year.

Passes can be checked out for three days at a time with no renewals, and only one pass may be checked out at a time. A fine of $1 per day will be assessed for passes that are returned late, and lost passes will result in a $100 replacement fee.

To reserve a pass, fill out the online request form and a library staff member will follow up to confirm availability of a pass for the requested dates.
