Seasonal (Day Use) Fees

Seasonal Vehicle Permits allow for unlimited day use visits (valid from 7:00am to 10:00 pm) to a provincial park. Seasonal permits are valid for all provincial parks in province.

There is no maximum number of visits to provincial parks for those who hold a seasonal permit. A reservation, online or via telephone, would be required for each individual visit. See below for details.
