Georgia Outdoor Recreational Pass (GORP)

The Georgia Outdoor Recreational Pass (GORP) is required to use on 32 designated properties owned by Georgia Wildlife Resources Division. This includes all Public Fishing Areas except for Rocky Mountain PFA. If you are ages 16 to 64, you must have a GORP or one of the following to access the PFA’s for non-fishing purposes:

  • 3-Day Fishing/Hunting License
  • Sportsmen’s License
  • Lifetime or Honorary License
  • Wildlife Management Area License

Traditionally, these properties—Wildlife Management Areas and Public Fishing Areas—have been supported financially by revenue from hunting and fishing licenses as well as federal funds from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program. While WMAs and PFAs are managed primarily for wildlife habitat, uses such as hiking, horseback riding and other activities are also allowed. The GORP offers these users a way to contribute to the upkeep of the properties.

  • GORP 3-Day: $3.50, GORP Annual: $19
  • GORP Plus Fishing 3-Day (residents only): $3.50, non-residents: $20.00
  • Small Group 3-Day: $10, Small Group, Annual: $35

For a complete list of GORP User Fee Areas, visit georgiawildlife.com. Transaction fees apply.
