Ontario Parks Day-Use Vehicle Permits

Explore our provincial parks with a free Day-Use Vehicle Permit! These park permits provide unlimited day-use access for one vehicle and its occupants to more than 100 provincial parks in Ontario where fees are normally charged. Park capacity limitations apply. These permits must be displayed on the rear-view mirror or dashboard of the vehicle while it is in a park.

New advance service for day use at select provincial parks: Beginning June 7, 2021, visitors will be able to book day use for their visits up to five days in advance at 17 select provincial parks. Library patrons will be able to use the borrowed permit’s serial number to obtain guaranteed access to these parks at no extra charge. When patrons arrive at a park, they will need to bring the permit they have borrowed from the library and a printed or electronic copy of the confirmation email that indicates they have secured a space at the park on the intended day of the visit.
