There are two types of envelopes: one for overnight camping and the other for day use. Choose an overnight camping envelope and complete the information requested on the flap of the envelope. Then, remove the flap and put it in plain sight on the dashboard of your vehicle. Place the envelope in the cash drop box of the self-registration station. Keep your Off-Season Pass with you.

If there are no fee envelopes, write “Pass Holder” and your pass number on a piece of paper. Please always keep your pass on your person while visiting the park.
