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.

New Ontario Parks has started a pilot project in Algonquin Park with regard to the advance online purchase of day use permits. See below for ways to obtain your day use permit, especially if you are a seasonal or commercial day use permit holder.

How to Get Your Algonquin Park Day Use Permit

  1. Buy your permit online, up to 5 days in advance. Online sales begin at 7:00am daily. Or call 1-888-668-7275 between 7:00am and 9:00pm. You must select your entry point of Achray/Sand Lake Gate, Brent, Highway 60, Kingscote, Kiosk, Shall, or Tim River.
  2. Buy your permit upon your arrival at Algonquin Park if permits are not sold out. Permits are available at most major park facilities.
  3. If a permit selling office is not staffed, buy your permit at a self-serve fee station, if permits are not sold out.

Permit sales are subject to Ontario Park's capacity limits.

Seasonal Day Use Permit Holders

New Ontario Parks is advising that entry is not guaranteed for seasonal and commercial day use permit holders and is dependent upon capacity limits. Those with seasonal and commercial day use permits must reserve online, up to 5 days in advance, to guarantee your entry on a specific date. Seasonal day use permits include annual, summer, and winter versions.
