According to Ontario Parks rules, motor vehicles entering the park always require a valid permit ("park pass") to be prominently displayed on their dash - either a Daily Vehicle Permit or a Seasonal Permit - 365 days a year. Failure to have or failure to display a permit may result in a fine.
Permits can be purchased online year round or in person at the Main Gate or the Park Office, depending on the season. The price for a Daily Vehicle Permit is $21 for summer 2022.
Permits are not required for anyone entering the park on foot or by bicycle.

In June 2021, Ontario Parks instituted a Daily Permit Reservation pilot program in certain parks including Presqu'ile. In order to guarantee entry to Presqu'ile on a specific day, you must make a reservation, even if you have a seasonal permit. There is no extra fee for the reservation. If and when the park reaches its maximum number of daily visitors, those without a reservation will be turned away.
For more information, please read the Ontario Parks website.
