National Park Passport Stamps

Collecting these silly ink blots is addictive and should be made illegal!  Nobody in their right mind would drive (or in my case ride a motorcycle) many miles just to get something stamped in a little book.  But we do it.  For some of us it's just an excuse to get out and ride, or as a good friend puts it, to "Seize The Journey!"

Although there are some available I'm not interested in obtaining awards or certificates for my stamps.  They have a time limit as well as other requirements, and I'm just not interested in that.  I collect stamps for my own enjoyment and nothing else.  I enjoy riding to the parks and sites and monuments, and the stamps are just an excuse to get out and ride.  I've visited a lot of places that I probably never would have gone to simply because there was a stamp available there.

My friend and riding buddy AGirl got me interested in collecting them.  She is a long distance motorcycle rider, and will go anywhere any time to get a park stamp.  In 2006 she managed to collect 158 stamps from all states except AK, HI, KS, and CT (and I know she tried twice for the only stamp available in CT), and all of them on a motorcycle.  Here Is A Link to to her "Stamp Collection".

A great source of Passport Stamp information is the web site at EParks.Com.  This site has a link to the "Official" list of stamp sites at the upper left corner of their page.  Keep in mind that not all National Parks or monuments have a stamp.  I haven't counted the total number myself but I think there are slightly over 600 available.


The table below shows the stamps that I have collected so far as well as many other regional stamps that I have not yet gotten to.  The "Exact GPS" column denotes whether or not I obtained an exact GPS location when I visited the site or not.  I try to remember to get an exact GPS location when I am there but sometimes I forget.  If the "Exact GPS" column reads "No" then the GPS coordinates were taken from the route that I used to get to the location.  They are normally very close and you should be able to see the facility from those coordinates.  Obviously if I have not visited a site (sites I have visited are shaded in green) then the GPS coordinates will be approximate.  Also, in many cases the columns will shown "Unknown" or be blank.  In these cases I have not yet gotten around to looking for the sites in my GPS software so all I know is that there is supposed to be a stamp there.

Hint ... For many of the stamp locations below there is an icon on the left that shows a blue map of the USA.  Clicking this icon will open the location in Google Maps.  These pages don't always load properly (take that up with Google, not me!) but when they do there is a "Map" page and a "Satellite" page.  The "Satellite" page shows an aerial photograph of the area that is very handy for finding where you need to go.

PERSONAL STAMP TOTALS:
First Stamp Date: September 2, 2006
Last Stamp Date: June 6, 2010
Total Stamps Acquired: 169
"Official" Stamps Acquired: 134
2006: 9
2007: 40
2008: 38
2009: 46
2010: 1
Total States Visited: 22

  • "Official" stamps are dated National Park stamps, dated Blue Goose stamps, etc.  "Unofficial" stamps are those that do not show a date.
     
  • Total Stamps Acquied number includes all stamps; dated, undated, THC stamps, etc.
     
  • All but three stamps obtained by motorcycle.
These things are getting much harder for me to acquire now.  The nearest one to home that I haven't obtained yet is about 350 miles one way.  I don't mind the distance, in fact I enjoy longer trips, the problem is finding the time to do it and hitting the stamp sites when they are open.  I work full-time, so a 700 mile trip for me means a weekend trip or a very, very long day.  I'm still working on them but the days of picking up a half-dozen close to home are pretty much gone.  I've got some long trips on the books that are going to take care of some of them though.

MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK

Mammoth Cave, KY - September 2, 2006
GPS Coordinates: N37.18670 W86.09900 (actual)
National Park Service Web Site: At This Link

I rode my bike to Mammoth Cave simply to get out and ride.  When I got there I noticed that they had the Passport Books for sale and even though I knew the consequences I bought one.  This stamp was the first one I captured.



STONES RIVER NATIONAL BATTLEFIELD

Murfreesboro, TN - September 4, 2006
GPS Coordinates: N35.88081 W86.43489 (actual)
National Park Service Web Site: At This Link

Stones River National Battlefield was an easy one for me to get, and they had three stamps available.  Murfreesboro is only about 25 miles from my home so I headed out one morning to visit the park.  Photos of my trip there are at This Link

Update - 02-24-07 - When I was at Stones River in September they did not have the stamp for the Tennessee Civil War NHA but they do now!  I read somewhere that the stamp was there so I rode back up to check and sure enough it was.  The lady at the Visitor Center that I talked to said it was a recent addition.

Update - 07-12-08 - I visited Stones River today to get the new Underground Railroad Freedom Network stamp and they currently have six stamps available, four of which are official dated National Park Passport stamps.  The other two are the Stones River National Battlefield stamp shown above and a Tennessee Historical Commission stamp for Stones River.

Update - 06-06-10 - I visited Stones River today to get the new National Cemetery stamp and they currently have sseven stamps available, five of which are official dated National Park Passport stamps.  The other two are the Stones River National Battlefield stamp shown above and a Tennessee Historical Commission stamp for Stones River.

The five official stamps at this site are:

  • Stones River National Battlefield - Murfreesboro, TN
  • Stones River National Cemetery - Murfreesboro, TN
  • Tennessee Civil War National Historic Area - Murfreesboro, TN
  • Trail of Tears National Historic Trail - Tennessee
  • Underground Railroad Freedom Network - Stones River NB









NATCHEZ TRACE PARKWAY

Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi
GPS Coordinates: See Below
National Park Service Web Site: At This Link

The Natchez Trace Parkway spans 444 miles from the northern terminus at Nashville, TN to the southern terminus at Natchez, MS.  I've been down it to the Colbert Ferry Crossing just over the Alabama state line, and it is one of my favorite places to ride my bike.

Photos of some of my trips down "The Trace" are on this web site at these links:
Natchez Trace Parkway photos
Fall Foliage Ride

IMPORTANT NOTE!
I talked to a staff member at the Tupelo Visitor Center on September 7, 2008 regarding stamps at some of the sites on the south end of the Natchez Trace Parkway.  I was told that the ONLY stamp now available on the NTP is the one at the Tupelo Visitor Center.  I was told that they felt it was getting difficult to manage and just threw all of the stamps away except for the main VC at Tupelo.  As of now there is ONLY ONE STAMP FOR THE ENTIRE NTP and it is at the Tupelo Visitor's Center.  If you have any of the stamps for sites other than the Tupelo VC they are collector's items because they are no longer available!

There are a number of Passport Stamp sites on the Natchez Trace Parkway.  Below is some information about a few of them:

Natchez Trace Parkway Northern Terminus - Mile 444 - GPS Coordinates: N36.02990 W86.97535 (Actual)
No passport stamp at this location.  Since it is the northern end of the Natchez Trace Parkway it is provided for reference only.

Leipers Fork Ranger Station - Mile 430 - GPS Coordinates: N35.89408 W87.02418 (Actual)
There is a passport stamp at the Leipers Fork ranger station, however finding someone there at a specific time is difficult.  It is a station used by the rangers that patrol the northern section of the parkway, and they do their job very well.  It is much easier to see them patroling up and down the road than sitting at the ranger station.  If you see one on the road (and you probably will you might be able to ask them to radio and see if anyone is there.

Note that the "Official" listing of passport stamps at EParks.Com as of 03/22/2008 only shows two stamps for the NTP in Tennessee.  Those are both at the Meriwether Lewis Monument (see below).  This is incorrect since all three of the stamps obtained on September 9, 2006 (yes, I know one of them shows "2005" and the other doesn't show a year, that was my bad!) are all three in fact in Tennessee at this location.

Meriwether Lewis National Monument - Mile 385.9 - GPS Coordinates: N35.51017 W87.45993 (Actual)
The Meriwether Lewis National Monument is the location where Meriwether Lewis (of Lewis and Clark fame) died.  At one time there was a passport stamp at this site, and it is listed on most of the passport stamp location lists, however it is no longer there.  It is very difficult to catch someone at this location, even more so than at Leipers Fork, but I was lucky enough to see a ranger there one time and he searched thoroughly for the stamp.  He said that the last time he had seen it was about 2 years previously (sometime in 2004) and at that time it was in the cabin that is at the monument.  Apparently someone stole it and is has never been replaced.

Update - 03/24/2007 - The Meriwether Lewis stamp is available at the Tupelo Visitor Center however you must specifically ask for it.

Colbert Ferry Crossing - Mile 327.3 - GPS Coordinates: N34.83394 W87.94828 (Actual)
I rode to the Colbert Ferry Crossing to get the stamp on September 9, 2006.  Apparently I picked a day right after they closed for the season because there was nobody there.  I could see the Passport Station through the glass door, but I resisted the temptation to bash it in.  I'm not sure exactly what their operational months are but they are closed during the winter.  I'll get another shot at this one when I head for Tupelo, MS as soon as it warms up a bit!

Update - 03/24/2007 - The Colberts Ferry stamp is available at the Tupelo Visitor Center however you must specifically ask for it.

Tupelo Visitor Center - Mile 266.0 - GPS Coordinates: N34.33032 W88.71020 (Actual) I rode to the Tupelo Visitor Center (among other places) on March 24, 2007.  They have most of the stamps for the entire Trace there, however they are somewhat stingy with them.  Actually they aren't really stingy they just want to insure that you actually visit a specific site before they give you a stamp for it.  Since I had been to Colbert's Ferry Crossing twice and the Meriwether Lewis monument 3 times I did get the stamps for those sites.

Tupelo National Battlefield - Mile 259.7 - GPS Coordinates: N34.25548 W88.73752 (Actual)
Tulepo National Battlefield is about 8 miles from the Tupelo Visitor Center in the city of Tulpelo.  The site is unattended and the stamp is at the NTP Visitor Center in Tupelo.


SHILOH NATIONAL MILITARY PARK

Hardin County, TN - October 8, 2006
GPS Coordinates: N35.15128 W88.32170 (actual)
National Park Service Web Site: At This Link

I rode to Shiloh on October 8, 2006 with my friend and riding buddy AGirl.  It was a gorgeous early fall day and we could not have asked for better weather.  To make it an epic day, AGirl got the last National Park Passport stamp that she needed to have all of them in Tennessee (not bad for a lady who lives in Arizona!) and also turned over 50,000 (that's fifty thousand!) miles on her DL1000 since last November.

A few photos of our trip are at This Link

Note that the Trail Of Tears stamp for Tennessee is also available at this site.


FORT DONELSON NATIONAL BATTLEFIELD

Dover, TN - October 15, 2006 & February 16, 2008
GPS Coordinates: N36.48283 W87.86301 (actual)
National Park Service Web Site: At This Link

I rode to Fort Donelson three times in 2006.  Twice by myself and once in company with three other V-Strom owners (one of whom was my riding buddy AGirl).  It is a great ride from Nashville, and the park is very interesting to ride through.  There is a spot that overlooks the Cumberland River that I suspect looks very much the same as it did during 1862.  There is also a family of American Bald Eagles that live there and apparently love to have their photos taken.

Photos of Fort Donelson and my trips there are at This Link

Update - February 16, 2008 - Ft. Donelson has a new stamp!  I just happened to notice that there were two stamp on the stand, and the ranger I talked with said it was very new.  It is for the Underground Railroad Freedom Network.  This stamp is not listed on the official stamp listing at EParks.Com under the listing for Tennessee but it is listed at the end of the document in the "National Trails" section.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN BIRTHPLACE

Hodgenville, KY - February 22, 2007
GPS Coordinates: N37.53066 W85.73632 (actual)
National Park Service Web Site: At This Link

The weather was nice for late February.  Too nice to do anything but get out and ride!  To that end I decided to ride up to Hodgenville, KY and visit the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln.  I managed to get two stamps at this site because during the winter months they keep the stamp for Lincoln's Boyhood Home there as well.

RUSSELL CAVE NATIONAL MONUMENT

Bridgeport, AL - March 4, 2007
GPS Coordinates: N34.97914 W85.81000 (actual)
National Park Service Web Site: At This Link

It was COLD when I left Nashville, but grabbing two stamps made a 250 mile round trip worthwhile.  They had the stamp for Little River Canyon National Preserve there as well as the stamp for Russell Cave National Monument.

BRICE'S CROSSROADS NATIONAL BATTLEFIELD

Baldwyn, MS - March 24, 2007
GPS Coordinates: N34.50452 W88.65763 (actual)
National Park Service Web Site: At This Link

This site commemorates a Civil War battle that occurred on June 10, 1864.  According to the NPS web site, "The Confederate victory at Brices Cross Roads was a significant victory for Major General Nathan Bedford Forrest, but its long term effect on the war proved costly for the Confederates.  Brices Cross Roads is an excellent example of winning the battle, but losing the war."

I rode to the Tupelo Visitor Center of the Natchez Trace Parkway on March 24, 2007 and came back up through Baldwyn, MS to visit this site.  The Visitor Center and the battlefield site are separate so be sure to visit both of them if you are in the neighborhood.

The stamp on top was obtained at the Tupelo Visitor Center.  Notice that it reads "Tupelo, MS."  The black stamp on the bottom was obtained at the Brice's Crossroads Visitor Center and it reads "Baldwyn, MS."  The site is actually located in Baldwyn, not Tupelo.

CORINTH CIVIL WAR INTERPRETIVE CENTER

Corinth, MS - March 24, 2007
GPS Coordinates: N34.93725 W88.53011 (actual)
National Park Service Web Site: N/A

This is a relatively new site that commemorates the battle of Shiloh and its extent down into Mississippi.  The site was apparently completed and opened in 2005.  It was difficult to find much information about this site, but it does exist at the GPS coordinates shown above and it does have a passport stamp.

CHICKAMAUGA AND CHATTANOOGA NATIONAL BATTLEFIELD

Lookout Mountain, TN & Ft. Oglethorpe, GA - April 21, 2007
GPS Coordinates:
    o   N35.00954 W85.34374 (Lookout Mtn. - actual)
    o   N34.94039 W85.25934 (Ft. Oglethorpe - actual)
National Park Service Web Site: http://www.nps.gov/chch/

Both the Lookout Mountain (Chattanooga) and Ft. Oglethorpe stamps are in the Visitor Centers at the GPS coordinates shown above.  The Point Park Visitor Center at Lookout Mountain (which is in Tennessee) also has the Georgia Trail Of Tears stamp but the Visitor Center at Ft. Oglethorpe (which is in Georgia) does not.  Go figure!

The road going to the Lookout Mountain VC is a winding, twisty, narrow mountain road, with a lot of traffic on it.  It is a relatively short distance from the bottom to the top, but if you are in a large camper or towing a trailer you might want to rethink this one.

A few photos of my trip are at This Link.


OBED WILD AND SCENIC RIVER

Wartburg, TN - May 12, 2007
GPS Coordinates:N36.10584 W84.59812 (actual)
National Park Service Web Site: http://www.nps.gov/obed/

The Visitor Center for Obed Wild and Scenic River is actually in downtown Wartburg at 208 North Maiden Street.  Wartburg is a small town so it is not difficult to find the Visitor Center.  Unlike most stamp sites you won't have to worry about this one being open.  When I visited they had a copy of the stamp in a box outside the front door!

BIG SOUTH FORK NATIONAL RIVER AND RECREATION AREA

Oneida, TN and Stearns, KY - May 12, 2007
GPS Coordinates:
    o   N36.48774 W84.69824 (Oneida, TN - actual)
    o   N36.69904 W84.47648 (Stearns, KY - actual)
National Park Service Web Site: http://www.nps.gov/biso/

The Visitor Center for the Tennessee side of the Big South Fork NRRA is not difficult to find.  Follow Highway 297 west from Oneida and then just follow the signs.  The stamp is inside the Visitor Center.

The Stearns, KY side is a bit different.  The Visitor Center is in a Historic District near the Stearns Museum.  The street address is 83 Henderson Street (I think).  Follow the signs for the Stearns Museum.  The museum is in an old house on top of a hill.  At the bottom of the hill is the Stearns Coal and Lumber Company, an old train depot, and some other historical areas.  The Visitor Center is inside the Train Depot, and there is only a small sign on the door.  The GPS coordinates are in the parking lot approximately 100' from the entrance.  Here Is A Link to a photograph that shows the area.

The Stearns VC has two stamps.  The one for the Big South Fork NRRA (Stearns, KY) as well as the "Blue Heron" stamp.

HOPKINSVILLE, KY
This stamp is somewhat difficult to obtain, and you will notice that mine is not truly "Official".  The Heritage Center is only open on Friday and Saturday from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm because they do not have enough volunteers to keep it staffed.  In addition, the "Real" stamp is presently located at the Chamber of Commerce office (I'm not certain where that is) although it is supposed to be delivered to the Heritage Center "Any time now".  The stamp that I got does not specifically state "Kentucky" on it, but the "New" one does.  Additionally the stamp that was there only went to the year 2000 so the volunteer added the "2" and "7" to make "2007".  I can't complain though since I visited on a Sunday.  I just happened to catch someone there and she was kind enough to provide me with the stamp and provide some history on the site.  Hopkinsville is close to Nashville so I'll pay another visit to the site and update the information when I can.

There are twelve Visitor Centers along the Blue Ridge Parkway and I was told that each one has a separate Passport Stamp.  I know for certain that at least nine of them have their own stamp but I have not visited the northern three VC's.  The actual GPS locations of the Visitors Centers that I have visited are shown above.  The Oconaluftee Visitirs Center in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is at the south end of the Blue Ridge Parkway and it has a stamp for the Parkway as well as a stamp for the Great Smoky Mountains (see the section above).

The stamp for the parkway itself is shown to the left and is available at some of the Visitors Centers (specifically Oconaluftee in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Linnville Falls, and the Blue Ridge Music Center at least).  Note that the Parkway stamp from Oconaluftee VC (see the section above) is slightly different from the one available at the Parkway VC's in that state name for Virginia is abbreviated at the Oconaluftee VC and spelled out at the VC's along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Date of Visit: July 5, 2008
GPS Coordinates: N39.72847 W84.19911 (actual)
Web Site: http://www.nps.gov/daav/

This stamp is a little bit ornery to get.  The National Historic Site is located on the grounds of Carillon Historical Park which is an Ohio State Park.  To get to the NHS you will have to pay an entry fee of $7 to get onto the State Park.  Even if you have a National Park Passport you will still have to pay because the State Park system does not recognize the National Park season passes.  Other than that the Visitor Center for the Flyer III is easy to find.  The GPS coordinates shown above are in the Carillon State Park parking lot and the VC for the Flyer III is several hundred feet away.

I have no idea why this stamp is considered to be part of the Wright Brothers Aviation Heritage.  It is at the home of Paul Laurence Dunbar who was the first African-American to gain national eminence as a poet.  As far as I know he had nothing to do with the Wright Brothers.

Regardless, the stamp is at the site, and the site is in downtown Dayton at the GPS coordianates shown above.

The stamp is in the Island Ford Visitor Center.  Be prepared to pay $3 for this stamp!  There is no fee for using the park however there is a $3 fee for parking.  I guess you could park on the street and not drive into the facility, but it would be a long walk!  You could also take a chance and not pay the $3 however there is a $75 fine if you get caught!

Date of Visit: July 19, 2008
GPS Coordinates: N33.75821 W84.37347 (actual)
Web Site: http://www.nps.gov/malu/

The hardest thing about getting this stamp is just getting there!  The facility is located in downtown Atlanta, GA and I DO NOT recommend that you even think about going if there is the slightest chance of encountering traffic.  I'm not sure what that leaves in the way of options but getting to this site is very difficult through traffic.  When I was there I-75 and I-85 were being repaved so I couldn't even use the interstates.  My GPS kept telling me to "Turn Right" and the damn street would be closed.  I'd keep going, my GPS would say "Recalculating" and then "Turn Right on ..." and the street would be closed.  I finally got there though.  The GPS coordinates above are in the parking lot to the north of the Visitor Center.  Follow the walkways and you will see the VC.

As can be seen there are two stamps available but only one of them is a dated stamp.  I always go ahead and get the "Bonus" stamps even though they are not "Official".

  FALLEN TIMBERS BATTLEFIELD NHS AND FALLEN TIMBERS MEMORIAL NHS

City & State: Maumee, OH
Date of Visit: Not Visited
GPS Coordinates: N41.56699 W83.64544 (approximate)
Web Site: City of Maumee, OH or Toledo Lucas County Public Library

I have not visited this site however I received an email from the librarian of the Maumee branch of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library who informed me that the stamps for these two sites are at their library.  I was told that since the two historic sites are non-staffed, and are maintained by the local Metropark system, that the stamps are at the library so that they would be available.  I was also informed that they are just down the street from Fort Miamis NHS so be sure and stop at Ft. Miamis for the stamp there when you visit!

Also be sure to tell Erin how grateful you are for voluntarily passing the information about these two stamps along!  These are two of the sites that would be difficult to get the stamps from unless we knew about this.  It would be great if more people took the initiative to let stamp collectors know about situations like this one.  I for one am very grateful!

The branch library is located at:

The stamps are all located in the respective visitor centers.  The Grandview VC is only open from 12:00 until 5:00 and only from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  During the winter months the stamp is available at the Sandstone visitor center.  I suspect that the Thurmond visitor center is similar however I did not visit it.  I obtained the stamp at the Canyon Rim visitor center and was told that during the winter months they keep it there.  I did have to specifically ask for it though, it was not out in the open.

The stamp is in the bookstore in the Visitor Center.  Arkansas has their own stamp program in place and there is a second dated stamp (the one shown in red) that should also be acceptable since it is different from the NPS stamp.  There is also an undated "Bonus" stamp as shown to the left.

Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument

City & State: Fritch, TX
Date of Visit: October 3, 2009
GPS Coordinates: N35.57977 W101.70328
Web Site: http://www.nps.gov/alfi/

I was there but the ranger was not.  There are two tours of the facility each day that are guided by the ranger.  When a tour is in progress the visitor center is closed.  I was there during a tour and chose not to wait an hour for the ranger to return so I did not get a stamp.  I could see the stamp station through the window so it is there however.

Update 11/02/09 - I sent a letter to the park office requesting that they stamp a piece of paper with the Alibates Flint Quarries stamp and return it to me in the SASE I provided.  Lo and behold about a week later I got response from them.  Not one, but TWO stamps!  One for Alibates Flint Quarries and another for Lake Meredith NRA!  It is certainly nice to find a national park that will do this since some of them seem to go out of their way to hide the stamps (see Zion National Park!).  Thank you!  Your help is greatly appreciated.

Date of Visit: October 3, 2009
GPS Coordinates: N35.64377 W101.58637
Web Site: http://www.nps.gov/lamr/

I got this stamp indirectly from the Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument.  I say "Indirectly" because when I was there the ranger was gone on a tour.  I sent a letter to the facility when I got home asking them to send me a copy of the Alibates Flint Quarries stamp, and when they responded they included the Lake Meredith stamp as well.  I assume that the stamp is at the Park Headquarters in Fritch, TX (which is where the GPS coordinates above point to) but I do not know that for certain.

Web Site: http://www.nps.gov/hove/

The stamp is in the Visitor Center.

Be aware that this is without question the most remote site I have visited.  I would not recommend visiting it low on fuel.  At the turn-off into the visitor center and campground there is a sign showing distances to the three nearest towns.  They all three read 41 miles.  Click This Link, switch it to "Satellite View" and take a look around.  There is NOTHING close by.  The GPS coordinates shown above were taken in the visitor center parking lot.

The stamp reads "Utah / Colorado" however the visitor center is 1.6 miles west of the state line so it is technically in Utah.  The mailing address is in Cortez, CO however the visitor center is most assuredly in Utah.

Zion National Park

City & State: Cedar City, UT (Kolob Canyon VC) and Springdale, UT
Date of Visit: October 7, 2009
GPS Coordinates: N37.45344 W113.22572 (Kolob Canyon) & N37.19923 W112.98767 (Springdale)
Web Site: http://www.nps.gov/zion/

The stamps are in the Visitor Centers.  The Centennial stamp is available in both of the visitor centers.  Strangely enough I damn near had to beg for the Springdale stamp.  The only stamp on display was the centennial stamp that I had already gotten at the Kolob Canyon VC.  I asked a ranger whether they had one specifically for the Springdale VC and he said that they did not.  He said that the only one they had was the centennial stamp.  I went back outside, dejected and stampless, and my riding partner was talking to another motorcyclist.  I said that there was no Springdale stamp and the other rider said that there certainly was, he had just gotten it.  He said that he asked the girl behind the counter of the book store (NOT the same person I talked to!) and she had gotten it out of the back room for him.  I went back inside, asked the girl behind the counter in the book store, and sure enough it was hidden in the back room.  Not only do we have to ask for the stamps now but we have to ask the right person!  What's up with that???

Most of the visitor centers have individual stamps.  I obtained two, one at the main VC and one at Kolb Studio.  I also picked up undated "Bonus Stamps" at Kolb Studio and Hermit's Rest.  I did not get GPS coordinates at the visitor centers because we took a bus tour and I did not have my GPS with me.  These are also two stamps that I did not obtain by motorcycle.

I have not visited this site however I received an email from a volunteer at the site on September 30, 2009 who provides this information:

I have been volunteering at Cape Lookout and while I donít know the GPS position, I can tell you there are passport stamps in both the Harkers Island and Light Station (not Keeperís Quarters) Visitor Centers.  Portsmouth has an unofficial stamp at the moment: the real one is supposed to be on order.

Thank you, Kerby!  It would be wonderful if other people at the NPS sites would do the same thing and provide some information pertaining to their sites.  It is very much appreciated, thank you very much.

TENNESSEE HISTORICAL COMMISSION STAMPS

The Tennessee Historical Commission has stamps scattered around the state at numerous historic sites.  I don't know where they all are, but have run across a number of them myself.  They are undated and would not be considered "Official" NPS Passport Stamps, but I still try and get a copy of them when I run across them.

According to a friend who provided me with a list of the sites, the Tennessee Historical Commission had a stamp book available for purchase.  The US Department of the Interior, the people who are in charge of the National Park Service and the National Park Passport Stamp program threatened to file suit against the State of Tennessee unless they stopped publishing their stamp book.  As I understand it the Department of the Interior felt it would cause competition against their program.  This is about the most absurd thing I have ever heard of, but it is typical of a government entity with nothing better to do.  Rather than think about the good it would bring, getting people out and to the parks, they whine about competition.

From what information I have been able to gather there were about 95 stamps available when the program was in full swing.  I'm not sure how long ago that was but now many of the stamps have been misplaced and are no longer available.  Many of those that are still available are pretty beat up, dried out, and do not stamp very well.  Regardless, I'll update the information below as I visit more of the sites.
