It’s More than a Challenge. It’s a Celebration.

A 100th anniversary deserves a big celebration. And this one is so big it fills the whole state. To commemorate the centennial of the founding of the National Park Service, Missouri’s national parks are hosting the Passport Challenge—a great way to experience the wealth of educational, cultural and recreational opportunities these local treasures have to offer.

Using your Passport to fun and adventure

Begin your challenge by picking up a free Show-Me National Parks Passport at any of Missouri's six national parks. Each park has a stamping station located in the visitor center. Stamp your Passport on that park's page. If you have trouble locating the stamping station, ask a ranger for help!

After collecting stamps from your first three parks, have your Passport verified and signed by a park ranger to receive your first prize. After visiting and collecting stamps at all six parks, have a ranger at any of the parks review your additional three stamps and sign your passport to receive your second prize. Prizes can be claimed in the Visitor Centers at any of the six Missouri national parks through December 31, 2017. Register your Passport at any time to enter to win the Grand Prize Drawing for four tickets to a 2018 season St. Louis or Kansas City home baseball game with a one-night stay at a Hotel.
