New MN State License Plate Gives Unlimited Access to State Parks

The new plates will cost $60 plus tax

A new specialty license plate will be going on sale December 1 to benefit Minnesota State Parks.

They will be fore sale at all Department of Public Safety and Department of Motor Vehicle locations throughout the state.

Purchasing one of these plates will also give you unlimited access to all Minnesota State Parks, and will feature an image of canoes on the water, surrounded by Minnesota’s four distinct seasons.

These license plates will cost $60 plus tax.

And if a license plate doesn’t interest you, the Department of Natural Resources will be opening up all Minnesota State Parks for free the day after Thanksgiving.

Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith said one of the biggest reasons why the state is doing this is because they want all Minnesotans to get outdoors during the holiday weekend.

This year is the 125th Anniversary of the Minnesota State Parks and Trails System.

Reports also show that State Parks and Trails permit sales are up six percent from 2015. Permits are $25 and are valid for one year, otherwise daily passes are always available for $5.
