Boat Launch/Parking Pass - $100

Boat Launch/Parking Passes will only be issued to those entering the park with a vehicle and boat trailer. The boat trailer license and the vehicle towing the trailer will be listed on the pass. Therefore the vehicle listed on the pass can enter the park without the trailer, and the trailer can enter the park being towed by another vehicle. The Boat Launch/Parking Pass cannot be spit between two separate vehicles entering the park. All pass users must stop at the gate when entering the park; failure to stop and show your pass may result in forfeiture of pass without refund. 


Please note:

    • Passes are valid for one boat launch per day.
    • Passes must be handed to the gatekeeper for validation upon each visit.
    • Passes must match one of the license plates listed on the tag.
    • Passes need to be placed where easily visible in your vehicle that is attached to your launch trailer.
    • Passes are accepted only when parking is available.
    • Passes are available to purchase per vehicle on a seasonal basis. A license plate number of the primary vehicle and boat trailer must be noted on each pass.
    • Passes are used for recreational purposes only, not for personal financial gain. Commercial use is strictly prohibited and will result in the forfeiture of pass without refund.

Passes can be purchase at the entrance booth to the park.  All fees subject to change.
