2010 Lake of the Arbuckles Launching Permits Now Available


2010 annual lake use permits (stickers) for use in the Chickasaw National Recreation Area on the Lake of the Arbuckles will be available for purchase beginning January 2, 2010.  The annual permit can be purchased for $30.00 from the automated fee machines at Guy Sandy, The Point, and Buckhorn launch ramps and the lobby of Sulphur Chamber of Commerce, 717 W. Broadway, Sulphur, Oklahoma.  The receipts must be redeemed for a yellow annual permit sticker within one week of purchase. 

If visitors are eligible for the Senior Pass (formerly Golden Age Passport) or Access Pass (formerly Golden Access Passport) discount, they must have their Senior Pass or Access Pass card in hand to input the card number for permit purchase.  The fee machine, which will accept either cash or credit card, dispenses two receipts for each transaction.  These receipts, which are heat and light sensitive, must be redeemed for a yellow annual permit sticker within one week of purchase.  The receipts may be redeemed at the following locations:  Travertine Nature Center, 7 days a week, 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; Park Headquarters (1008 W. 2nd Street), Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; the Visitor Information Station (717 West Broadway), seven days a week, 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., or when NPS staff are present; and the Buckhorn Ranger Station when personnel are available.  Boat owners will also need to bring their current boat registration to obtain the annual sticker.  These permits will expire December 31, 2010. The annual permit stickers are to be placed on both sides of the watercraft and trailer.

The Travertine Nature Center, Visitor Information Station and Park Headquarters all sell the Senior Pass and Access Pass. The Senior Pass can be purchased (U.S. Citizen and 62 years of age) for $10.  There is no charge for the Access Pass.  For more information about passes and lake permits, call the Travertine Nature Center at 580 622-7234 or visit the park website at http://www.nps.gov/chic/
