2016 day use passes now available at Tuttle Creek

Published Jan. 8, 2016

MANHATTAN, Kan. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Tuttle Creek Lake today announced the availability of the 2016 day use pass for purchase at the Tuttle Creek Lake Visitor Center, 5020 Tuttle Creek Boulevard, Manhattan, KS.

The cost of the pass, which is valid nationwide, is $40 and permits the holder and accompanying passengers to use boat ramps and swim beaches at Corps parks without further charge.

An annual or day use pass is required at day use facilities at Corps parks where those fees are charged. Tuttle Creek Cove Park is the only area at Tuttle Creek Lake that charges day use fees. There is a boat ramp fee April 1 – Oct. 31 and a beach use fee May 15 – Sept. 15.

One change this year to the pass program is that holders of the Golden Age, Golden Access or America the Beautiful Senior and Access passports are no longer eligible to purchase the annual pass at half price. Additionally, state park permits do no reciprocate with Corps day use passes.

For more information on the day use fee program, stop by the Tuttle Creek Lake Visitor Center of call 785-539-8511.
