Rhode Island State Beach Season Passes

What you need to know:

  • A season pass will give you access to all eight Rhode Island State beach parking lots. However, it does not guarantee admission on high-capacity days or provide preference over  day pass sales. Entry is on a first come, first served basis at all locations.
  • Resident and Non-Resident status is based solely upon the state that the vehicle is registered in. If you purchase a Resident pass, your vehicle must be registered in Rhode Island. All others are required to purchase a Non-Resident pass. If the pass does not match the state registration status of the vehicle, the pass will be voided and the occupants will be required to pay the day use parking fee.
  • A Senior Citizen pass is available to individuals who are 65 or older. The senior pass must be affixed to the vehicle windshield and an eligible senior must be present in the vehicle. The eligible senior parker may be required to present identification as proof of age. If a senior is not present in the vehicle, the car will be required to pay the day use parking fee.
  • Season passes are non-refundable. Please make sure you purchase the correct pass based on your residency and/or age.
  • A convenience fee will be added to online purchases, but if you prefer, you can purchase your pass at one of the below participating locations where this fee will not apply.
