PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management announced their state beach parking pass for the 2023 season.

Terry Gray, director of the Department of Environmental Management, said the passes allow for quicker entry into beach lots during the busy summer season.

“It might seem counterintuitive to already be planning for this summer’s hazy, hot, and humid beach days,” said Gray, “But now is the perfect time to buy your 2023 State beach season parking pass for some of the best beaches anywhere.”

The passes are priced on residency and age as follows:

  • Resident pass — $30
  • Non-resident pass — $60
  • Resident senior pass — $15
  • Non-resident senior pass — $30

Season passes allow entry into parking lots at all eight of Rhode Island’s state beaches.

The department emphasized season passes do not guarantee admission on high-capacity days or provide preference over other beach-goers.
