One way to tell milder weather is coming? Fee season is beginning March 1 at Delaware state parks.
The state Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control is reminding visitors that starting Thursday, visiting a state park will cost you.
Daily park entrance fees for vehicles registered in Delaware are $3 at inland parks and $4 at ocean parks. Fees for out-of-state vehicles are $6 at inland parks and $8 at ocean parks. Don’t see a a fee attendant on duty? You’re expected to stick the money in an envelop and one of the designated drop-boxes. Annual passes will cost you anywhere between $12 and $54, and lifetime passes are available.
The fees help maintain the 26,000 acres of state park land in Delaware. Fee season ends Nov. 30.
