Motor Vehicle Fees & Boat Launch Fees

Parking fees are collected from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day at the following parks: North Beach Park, Olive Shores, Kirk Park, Rosy Mound Natural Area, and Tunnel Park. An annual motor vehicle permit is also required at the Riverside Park boat launch Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Permits are required even if there is no one at the booth. Vehicles in the parking lot without a valid permit are subject to a civil infraction citation.

An annual permit is an economical choice for frequent visitors. Annual permits may be purchased at park entrance gates when fees are in effect (limited annual permit sales available at Rosy Mound and Olive Shores), at the Nature Center, or from the county parks office. The Oaklea Store (near Riverside Park) also sells permits from May through August. Please note that a Michigan State Parks Recreation Passport is not valid at Ottawa County Parks.
