New kiosks offer convenience for state park visitors – Journal Advocate

North Sterling State Park has a new feature to make it easier for visitors to purchase a parks pass.
The park is one of eight state parks to receive a new self-service kiosk so far.

Source: www.journal-advocate.com

"Not a lot of people have exactly seven dollars [for a daily park pass] in their pockets," said CPW Statewide Business Operations Coordinator Kirk Teklits. "As far as customer service goes, being able to pay by credit card is definitely a desirable service option.

 

15 stations are currently installed at nine parks and more will be coming later this summer.

 

"This helps our state parks become more modernized," Teklits said. "Most of the kiosks run on solar power, provide multiple sales channels to our customers, and help our staff with money collection and counting. It also helps our law enforcement officers quickly determine who has bought a pass and who hasn’t."

 

Teklits said there have already been more than 800 daily passes and 55 annual passes sold through the kiosks since the first ones were installed June 13. The kiosks accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover cards.
