According to State regulations, persons with disabilities receive a $4.50 discount per night for stays in State Parks. I have a pass I got from them over 10 years ago and I can't find a place online now to obtain a pass. I'm not sure if you even need it anymore as long as you have proof of eligibility.

As far as Federal campgrounds (which includes U.S. Army Corps of Engineers [Raystown] campgrounds) with the America the Beautiful Access Pass, you receive a 50% discount off of the fees. That discount also applies to any fees associated with a federal facility which imposes a gate fee. For example, my husband and I visited the Wright Brothers Memorial in the OBX and the whole family went to the Johnstown Flood Museum in South Fork and the Allegheny-Portage Railroad (Lemon House) site and with the Access Pass, our admission was free. I am sure the Flight 93 Memorial will fall under this same statute.

Happy Camping (at a reduced rate)!!!

I also have the Federal Acces Pass and I was thinking that the state might accept that as proof of disability. I was gonna try to camp at Prince Gallitzin this year and was going to see if that pass was good enough.

When making your reservations, I have just always checked the ADA discount box. I have never been asked for anything when I got to the gate to check-in.

Thanks for this post, we are new to camping and I have a federal pass so will be getting discounts. I have used the pass across the country while visiting national parks including Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain and Glacier.

I do not have a parking card as my daughter is mentally disabled, not physically. The State will not give us a parking card.
