Beginning in 2018, Connecticut will offer all residents with Connecticut license plates on their vehicles free parking at all state parks and beaches. Connecticut wants to make state parks, forests, trails, historic sites and beaches more available to our residents so they can enjoy the many attractions and beauty they offer.
A $10 fee, which amounts to $5 per year, will be included in all two-year non-commercial vehicles with new registrations, renewals and plate transfers. These are passenger cars and vehicles with combination plates
as well as motorcycles, campers/motor homes and vehicles with antique car plates.
In addition, seniors 65 years old and older with a one-year registration renewal will have only an additional $5 fee each year.
The new program allows the State of Connecticut to give more to the public that has now invested in our park system: Increased lifeguards, improved park maintenance, shoulder season camping for opening day of fishing and into the fall foliage, and longer hours at our museums and nature centers. When people visit our state parks and other sites they visit local restaurants, shops and local farms. This program brings many economic benefits for our state.
