Stupid question here - I'm planning on launching at Isle De Bois on Sunday. I was reading that they require you to reserve an advance day pass. Do I have to reserve one of these if I have an annual pass? Had a coworker tell me I had to have the Advance Day Pass so I wanted to confirm. My understanding was that this was for the people that didn't have an annual pass.

It is my understanding you still have to fill out the form at the kiosk at each park if you have an annual pass and put your card number on the form. I do not think you display the card itself any longer.

I ended up calling the general help line (you can't get through on the reservation line). They told me I have to reserve a day pass but it would be free since I have an annual. I went to the site and reserved one but I still had to pay. Doesn't make any sense to me but I need to get out on the water. Thanks for the help though!

BTW - I ended up finding a tweet from @TPWDparks as well. It states if you have a park pass you still need a reservation. One of the reasons I always bought the pass was to make it easy (supposed to save money too).

If you can stand the over one hour hold time for the Support line (I just put my phone on speaker and went on with my life until they answered) they will fix the issue for you within 24 hours. I forgot my reservation today and just put a note on my dash with pass info and it passed muster.

Thanks for the info! I'll try again on Monday. I keep getting asked to schedule a callback time and anything I enter is not valid.

I went to Choke Canyon yesterday. I have an annual pass, but still had to go online to reserve/ print a pass to stick in my window. It was free since I have the annual pass

They told me it should be. It looks like my pass isn't associated with my account for some reason. I'll find someone eventually that has enough of a clue to help me get it fixed.

This is correct.

You will have to call TPWD and have them link your annual pass to your online account. I had to do this exact thing about a month ago. only takes a few after you can get someone on the line. I think the reservations number is who I called and talked to. (512) 389-8900

Need to look at park alerts at TPW and see if the ramp is open.

Once you log into the site, check the box next to your pass holder information on the reservation page, then at check out a discount is applied and there is no charge to print out your pass. Today they are totally booked, show up after 8am without a pass printed off and you won’t get in to IDB. Less than 40 left for tomorrow when I was looking last night.
