Yes, you can purchase a gift card online and it will be mailed out to you.
You may use your gift card to make a reservation online so long as your gift card balance will cover the transaction amount (no split payments with credit cards). You can also use your gift card as payment if you make a reservation through the call center.
State park permits (day and year-round passes) are available through the reservation website. Ski and horse passes, OHV and snowmobile registrations, and fishing and hunting licenses are sold through the electronic licensing system, not through the Minnesota state parks reservations system.
To speed up the time it takes to process your reservation, please research the parks and campsites you're interested in, and consider having a campground map on hand for reference as you make your reservations. If your first choice is not available, having a map can help speed the process of selecting an alternative. Each state park has a campground maps available as PDF downloads. Here's an alphabetical listing of all Minnesota state parks and recreation areas.
It will also help speed things up if you have already set up your user name and account on the reservations system.
