Order a Massachusetts ParksPass to get unlimited day-use parking access to state park facilities.
The Massachusetts ParksPass is an annual pass. It provides visitors unlimited day-use parking access to state park facilities within the DCR that charge a parking fee. The ParksPasses are hangtags issued for one vehicle and are valid for one calendar year – January 1 to December 31.
DCR ParksPasses are available for the following fees:
Massachusetts Resident: $35 per calendar year
Non-Massachusetts Resident: $45 per calendar year
ParksPass holders may purchase a 'second car' sticker for $15.00. The 2nd car sticker will be affixed to the hangtag, and will permit a second family vehicle registration number/license plate number to be added, allowing annual ParksPass holders to interchange the ParksPass between the two family vehicles.
Parking fees may apply - varies by location. Learn more about the Massachusetts ParksPass.
Great hiking and photo opportunities!We have gone to a few of the State Parks and they are great for hiking and exploring, especially with young kids. One of our favorites is Borderland State Park in Easton. Not only are the hiking trails good for young children but the State Parks also offer amazing photo opportunities of nature and great spots for pictures of your kids!
