Want to hit one of the more than 60 state parks this summer? The Iowa State Park Passport program has returned for 2021 (2020 was its inaugural year), offering prizes and challenges for exploring. The free online signup tracks your progress as you visit.
The first 1,000 people to check into 10 parks will receive a 2021 Iowa State Park Passport t-shirt. If you reach 30 parks, you’ll be entered to win one of four Fitbit activity trackers. There are also monthly prize packs, including paddleboard and water sport accessories, camping accessories, cooler sets and more.
