Effective January 1, 2012, a Georgia Outdoor Recreational Pass (GORP) will be required to use 32 properties managed by Wildlife Resources Division.
The properties are Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) and Public Fishing Areas (PFAs). Each is managed for wildlife/fish habitat and development and funded mostly by revenue from hunting and fishing licenses. Secondary uses, such as hiking, cycling, caving, bird watching and many other such activities, are also allowed.
The Georgia Outdoor Recreational Pass will help the Wildlife Resources Division cover the maintenance costs of properties that experience heavy traffic from secondary users.
GORP 3-Day: $3.50
GORP Plus 3-Day Fishing: $3.50
GORP Annual: $19
Small Group,* 3-Day: $10 per vehicle
Small Group, Annual: $35 per vehicle
BEST VALUE: Buy a GORP Plus, which includes a 3-day Fishing License, for the same price and you have fishing privileges while you’re on the property.
*A Small Group equals 8 people or less in one vehicle. Contact the Regional Game Management office for assistance with Right-of-Entry agreements for larger, organized groups.
