I was wondering if anyone knows what the rules are regarding the need for park passes if you are at a cottage say in Stanhope and want to walk up to the beach.

I'm not really familiar with the cottage area so for all I know, maybe you can't even walk to the beaches.

I suppose it stands to reason that it's no different than anyone else wanting to access the beach but I was just wondering if there was an exemption for cottage owners or tourist renting cottages adjacent to the Gulf Shore Parkway.

We rented a cottage in Stanhope a few years ago. We easily walked to the beach and did not need a pass. (I expect if you are driving in the National Park area though....you would need a pass.) Check with the people you are renting from.

It's free to walk into the National Park..Most cottages in Stanhope have some kind of access like a path that leads to the beaches. Not sure how it works if your actually renting a cottage inside the National Park territory, I assume the cottage owners would supply a pass for the length of your stay.

Thanks.

Not renting, saw some for sale and it just had a few of us wondering if that included beach access or would you need to buy a seasonal park pass every year as well.

I didn't realize that it was free to walk into the park.

Are you certain? I thought parks implemented per-person admissions (rather than per car) so that they could charge admission to people on bikes and on foot.

I could be mistaken, but that's how I interpreted it.

No idea how it works if the cottage is within parks boundaries.

Some of them look like they are bordering on the boundary but it looks like it is just a matter of crossing the road.

You only pay to drive in.

It is free to walk or bike into the park, if you're driving just tell them you're going to the harbour, that'll get you in for free.

A seasonal pass is only like $65 a year too if you didn't feel like lying every time you go into the park.

But most people just say they are going to the harbour.

A seasonal pass is $99 that you can buy for 1/2 that in June.

You can tell them you are going to the harbour but you run the risk of getting a ticket if your found parked in a 'Park' area (the harbour lot is not a park area). Not sure what the fine is.
