Michigan's Recreation Passport
Your $11 Recreation Passport
When you check "YES" for the Recreation Passport when renewing your Michigan license plate with the Secretary of State, you gain access to over 100 state parks, hundreds of miles of pathways, and more. In addition, you say "YES" to protecting Michigan's natural resources for future generations.
The two tiny "P's" printed at the top and bottom of your license plate tab, as well as the words "Recreation Passport" on your registration, are your proof of purchase. Check "YES" for the Recreation Passport when you renew your license plate at a Secretary of State branch office, self service station, by mail or online. It's valid until your next vehicle plate renewal date. And that's good for you and great for Michigan!
If you forgot to opt in to the Recreation Passport at the Secretary of State, you can also purchase a window sticker at state parks and recreation areas.
