AUGUSTA — Maine's state parks division says it sold more park passes in 2012 than any year in the history of the 77-year-old state park system.
For the year, the Division of Parks and Public Lands said it sold 10,763 vehicle passes and 1,354 individual passes good for day use at most of the state's parks and historical sites.
Officials said 2013 park passes are now available for purchase online. They cost $35 for an individual pass, which allows access only to the pass holder, or $70 for a vehicle pass, which allows entry to the parks for all people in a vehicle.
