Ontario Parks announced the details of the 2022 daily vehicle permits this week. County residents are encouraged to become familiar with this program, which provides day-use access to Sandbanks and North Beach Provincial Parks.
- Daily vehicle permits must be booked in advance in order to guarantee admission to Sandbanks, North Beach and 31 other participating parks across the province.
- Booking begins on Monday, May 16 at 7 am for day use starting on Friday, May 20. Permits can be booked up to five days in advance.
- Season pass holders are required to reserve their spot at the Parks by booking a daily vehicle permit in advance.
- 2021 season passes remain valid for the 2022 season.
Visitors who arrive at Sandbanks or North Beach without a reservation will be turned away if reservations are sold out. In 2021, Sandbanks was sold out approximately 60 days between mid-June and August. North Beach was sold out approximately 30 days. Ontario Parks strongly recommends securing a daily vehicle permit in advance for all participating parks.
Ontario Parks has also introduced a new Commercial Day-Use Vehicle Permit for businesses to share with their customers. Local accommodators and other tourism-industry businesses are encouraged to purchase this new pass to share with their guests and customers.
