Reservation required with park pass:
Visitors with pre-paid or discounted access to NH State Parks are encouraged to make online reservations as well. When making a reservation you can indicate that you are a pass/parks plate holder on your order details page and you will not be charged the day-use/parking fee. However there will still be a $1 transaction fee for using the online reservation system. In the case that those with pre-paid or discounted access choose not to purchase a day use pass or parking pass reservation, we will be setting aside a limited number of parking spaces for pre-paid and discounted access based upon historical use. This does not guarantee space will be available when you arrive at the park.
