Distinguished Veterans Discount 

The County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation is honoring the State of California’s Distinguished Veterans Pass (DVP). With this pass, Veterans who qualify can enjoy the benefits of park facilities at little or no cost. Holders of this pass receive the following benefits: 

  • Up to seven nights of free camping per calendar year at any County campground 
  • Waived day-use fees at any County park or reserve where fees are required (traditionally $3 per vehicle); all other vehicles must pay any applicable fees

Qualified disabled war veterans, former prisoners of war or recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor are eligible to receive the DVP discount. Information on obtaining a pass through the State of California can be found on the  California State Parks website. Until the Department's computerized reservation system is upgraded to accept the DVP electronically, qualified participants wishing to camp should visit Parks and Recreation headquarters at 5500 Overland Avenue, Suite 410, San Diego, CA. 92123 or call (877) 565-3600, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Same-day reservations can be made at any camping facility with ranger approval and proof of DVP, but future reservations must be made in person or by phone.

  • You must self-identify as a DVP holder when making a reservation.
  • You can book same-day camping reservations as long as you have proof of your DVP and a valid photo ID.
