Parking Information:

Convenient parking is available. A Recreation Passport is required for vehicle entry into the state park. If you already purchased one at the time of renewing your license plate, or already have a window sticker on your vehicle, you can proceed directly to the parking lot once you cross the bridge and do not have to wait in line. If you do not have a Recreation Passport, they can be purchased at a Secretary of State branch office, self service station or online. Window stickers can be purchased at the visitor contact station, at the White House on Belle Isle, or at the entrance booth. The Recreation Passport costs $11 for Michigan vehicles.

For the most enjoyable walk experience please remember these points:
