New Hampshire State Parks has unveiled a series of new logo designs for nine of its most iconic parks and destinations. They are currently available as patches or pins, with a new line of T-shirts, mugs, and other logo products slated to be released in the coming year.
These new logos are not yet available in stores. At the moment, they can only be acquired with the purchase of a New Hampshire State Park gift certificate (excellent for the coming holiday gift-fest). Buy a $30 gift certificate and you'll also receive a patch or pin of your choosing. For $60, you receive both a patch and pin. Gift certificates are good for day-use and camping fees at any New Hampshire state park, as well as admission to Hampton Beach State Park and Wallis Sands State Park. To order, call 603-271-3556. (They are not available for online purchase unfortunately.)
Logos are available for the following parks and destinations:
These new logo designs provide park users with another great way to support the New Hampshire State Park system. Such support is essential for their continued operation. New Hampshire is the only state in the country that requires its state parks to get all of its funding solely from user fee revenue—it allocates no state funds for any aspect of park care and maintenance. Now you can wear your support with pride.
