You can buy your annual Wisconsin State Park Sticker at the Visitor Information Office or else you may order your annual vehicle admission stickers and trail passes by phone at (608)266-2181 between 7:45 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. MasterCard or Visa accepted. We also urge you to purchase your stickers online from the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks here.
Are You A Resident? Actually your CAR has to be a resident regardless of where you live! Stickers are sold to match the license plate of the vehicle not the visitor’s residency. So if you are from Wisconsin you will need to drive your Wisconsin licensed vehicle to get the residential rate.
Additional Stickers: Additional (second or third. . . ) annual stickers may be purchased at a reduced rate for any additional family cars. The key rule is that both (or more) cars must be registered to the same address.
