New Fees at Sweet Run Park

Sweet Run State Park, just over the Blue Ridge in Loudoun County off Harpers Ferry Road (Route 671) will implement a $10 parking fee for guests beginning on May 6, 2024. 

Virginia’s newest state park doesn’t have a contact station yet, so guests will be able to pay using a self-pay envelope found at the pay stations located at each of the park’s entrances and parking areas. The pay stations accept cash, check or Visa, Mastercard or 
Discover cards. 

Guests can also purchase an annual pass to avoid daily parking fees at Sweet Run, as well as all Virginia State Parks. “We made it through the first few months of the transition into a new park and now comes the parking fee collection time that all guests were anticipating,” said Sweet Run State Park Manager Kevin Bowman. “Parking revenue will be used to continue to develop Virginia State Parks and its programs. Just a reminder that purchasing an annual pass is a great way to avoid daily park fees and is a perfect gift for outdoor enthusiasts or anyone on your gift list any time of the year.”
