Visitors to the Big South Fork who are taking part in the Passport to Your National Parks program can now get two new stamps.

The stamps are designed specifically for the Historic Rugby and Gateway to the Big South Fork Visitor Centers in Crossville. They will be available starting Saturday, July 12.

The National Park Passport Stamps, which are free, are similar in nature to passport cancellation stamps stamped in a traveler's national passport. The program was started in 1986 as a way to encourage visitors as many of the 401 national park sites across the country.

The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area has three other park passport stamps specific to Bandy Creek, Blue Heron, and Stearns.
