OHIO STATE PARK LODGES, March 12, 2014 – The five Ohio State Park Lodges operated by Xanterra Parks & Resorts are supporting the state’s outdoor enthusiasts by offering room discounts to anyone with valid Ohio  fishing, hunting or trapping licenses and to those holding an Ohio Wildlife Legacy stamp.

“We appreciate the people who appreciate the natural bounty the Buckeye State offers, and we absolutely support the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Wildlife, who work hard to ensure that future generations will enjoy the same,” said Hinch Knece, marketing manager  for Ohio State Park Lodges. “With this promotion, our sportsmen and sportswomen will save the equivalent of the cost of their licenses after just one or two nights’ stay.”

Those holding the Wildlife Legacy stamp receive a 25 percent discount, and those with a fishing, hunting or trapping license receive a 10 percent discount off their lodge room or cabin. Valid licenses or stamps must be presented upon check-in. The discount is available for advance reservations and those walking in to the lodges. Some blackout dates and restrictions apply.

To make advance reservations, call 1-800-282-7275 or go online to www.ohiostateparklodges.com/wildlife and use the promo codes LICENSE or LEGACY.  

The Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp allows wildlife enthusiasts the opportunity to directly impact the future of Ohio’s native animals. For $15 they receive a collectible stamp, pin, window cling and commemorative card. The stamp proceeds support habitat restoration, land purchases and conservation easements; protect endangered and threatened native species; create educational products for students and wildlife enthusiasts; and help fund wildlife and habitat research projects.
