COLUMBUS – Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Director James Zehringer announced that Ohio State Parks will now be offering additional military discounts.

A 10 percent discount is available for active duty or military veterans for camping, getaway rentals, cottages and lodge rooms at any of the nine state park lodges.

“Ohio’s active and military veterans have made countless sacrifices for our nation, and we wanted to find a way to thank them for their service,” said Zehringer. “I hope that the brave men and women that have proudly served our country can take the opportunity to enjoy, with their families, what their efforts have helped preserve.”

“We appreciate partnering with ODNR to better serve our Ohio active military and veterans,” said Ohio Department of Veterans Services Director Tim Gorrell. “Veterans have given much on our behalf, and this is a way to give back and encourage them and their families to enjoy the outdoor recreational opportunities Ohio offers.”

In honor of Veterans Day this fall, ODNR will provide active or military veterans with a 20 percent discount off camping, getaway rentals, cottages and lodge rooms from Friday, Oct. 31, through Sunday, Nov. 16, 2014.

Both of these military discounts may only be used for a single campsite, getaway rental unit, cottage or lodge room per visit and must belong to the cardholder using the facility. Military identification must be presented at the time of arrival or check-in to receive the discount.
