Beach Parking with a National Park Service Pass

by Pam
(Springfield, MA, USA)

Question: I want to know if I can use my National Park Service Pass for parking at all Cape Cod Beaches.

If not, please let me know where the cheapest parking is near West Yarmouth.

Dee's Reply: Hi Pam! Your National Parks Pass is valid for parking only at Cape Cod National Seashore beaches.

That includes:

  • In Eastham - Coast Guard Beach and Nauset Light Beach

  • In Wellfleet - Marconi Beach

  • In Truro - Head of the Meadow

  • In Provincetown - Race Point and Herring Cove Beach
At most other beaches, in-season parking requires either a daily fee or a town-issued sticker/pass.

I say "most", because there are a few beaches on the Cape where you can park for free any time.

You can read about them and see photos here.

Have a great time!

Best Regards,
