Park Admission - Online Payment

Online Payments for Park Entry

Buy Before You Go

Visitor, staff and volunteer safety remain top priorities of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Florida Park Service. To support social distancing efforts, visitors can purchase their admission single-use day pass online ahead of their visit instead of paying at the park. This will allow visitors to limit physical interaction with park staff while entering the park.

No advance Day Pass purchases are available at this time. Your Passes are good only for the same date of purchase. Pre-purchased Day Passes do not guarantee park entry upon arrival.

Day Passes are available in three options (varies based on park availability):

Day Pass Type When to Buy
Vehicle Admission  Purchase this day pass for park admission for up to 8 people in a vehicle. Valid for admission to the park for the date purchased ONLY. Does not waive other special use fees such as premium tours and equipment rentals.
Single-Occupant Vehicle or Motorcycle Admission Purchase this day pass for park admission for a vehicle with one person or for motorcycles. Valid for admission to the park for the date purchased ONLY. Does not waive other special use fees such as premium tours and equipment rentals.
Pedestrian or Bicycle Admission Purchase this day pass for park admission for pedestrians or bicyclists. This is a per person fee. Valid for admission to the park for the date purchased ONLY. Does not waive other special use fees such as premium tours and equipment rentals.

Many parks fill to capacity, especially on weekends and holidays. Pre-purchased Day Passes do not guarantee park entry upon arrival. Should the park be at capacity when you arrive, you will not be allowed to enter the park at that time. Park staff may suggest that you try visiting at an alternate time during that day. If you are unable to enter a park due to park capacity issues, you may request a full refund for your Day Pass by calling 1-888-622-9190.

Am I required to buy my day pass online?

No. Florida State Parks that are open to the public will offer other options to pay at the park for admission.

Can I use my Day Pass at multiple Florida State Parks?

Florida State Parks Annual Entrance Passes will be honored for park admission. If you are a current Florida State Parks Annual Entrance Pass holder, you do not need to purchase a day pass online – your pass will be honored.

Will I still have to wait in line?
