Michigan State Parks Recreation Passport

Recreation Passport

The Recreation Passport replaces the state parks sticker to get you into all state parks, state recreation areas and state boat launches. This does not include local, county, municipal, or metropolitan parks or recreation areas.


  • Your Recreation Passport also helps preserve state forest campgrounds and trails, and historic and cultural sites in state parks.
  • Camping fees are an extra charge.
  • Your vehicle registration and license plate tab are your proof of purchase.
  • Your Recreation Passport is valid during the same period as your registration.

License plate with passport indicator

When you renew your license plate and purchase a Recreation Passport,
your new tab will have a special "P" printed on it. The tab serves as your
Recreation Passport. You will not receive a separate parks sticker.
