  • Get your Recreation Passport for four seasons of fun

    Michigan's Recreation Passport means four seasons of fun in Michigan's woods and waters, and it also helps preserve Michigan's outdoors for future generations.

    When you buy your Recreation Passport, you get access to all 102 state parks, plus state trailhead parking, boat launches and harbors.

    Michigan motorists can get the Recreation Passport through the Secretary of State by checking "yes" when renewing a license plate online, by mail, at Self Service Stations, or at a branch office. Save time, renew online!
