Library patron’s will be able to use the borrowed permit’s serial number to obtain guaranteed access to these parks at no extra charge.

 

There are two ways to obtain a daily vehicle permit in advance for the 17 participating parks.

  1. Online at reservations.ontarioparks.com

  2. By phone at 1-888-ONT-PARK (1-888-668-7275) – Open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
