San Mateo County Park Pass

Why buy a park pass?

The San Mateo County Park Pass offers one year, unlimited access, for you and all passengers in a personal vehicle at County Parks that charge a per vehicle fee. You can go to any park, any day, at any open time for an entire year.

Who may purchase a park pass?

Anyone can purchase a pass. You do not need to be a San Mateo County resident. You can also give the pass as a gift to allow others to enjoy and appreciate the amazing locations from bay to coast that are part of the San Mateo County Park system.

How does a park pass work?

The pass is good for 12 months from the date of purchase and waives the vehicle entry fee, allowing the passholder to easily enter the park. Other park usage fees, such as picnic and camping reservations, are not covered by a park pass. You, or the person you designate as the passholder, will receive the pass in the mail within 14 days of purchase. Lost or stolen passes cannot be replaced and no refunds can be issued.
