You can obtain these stickers at various locations, including the below. Just remember to bring two pieces of ID that provide proof of local property ownership (e.g. deed, tax records, local drivers license, etc.)

The beach parking sticker allows you to park for free at several Collier County beaches including

  • Barefoot Beach Access

  • Barefoot Beach Preserve

  • Vanderbilt Beach

  • Clam Pass Park

  • North Gulfshore Access

  • Tigertail Beach

  • South Marco Access

  • Conner Park

To avoid fines and hassles, make sure you park in designated spots and pay the appropriate fees. The Parks and Recreation department advises against parking in non-designated areas to prevent violations. Parking without payment or authorization can result in a fine of $30. Collier County beach patrol cars frequently monitor parking lots to catch violators, so be sure to follow the rules and regulations.

For those without a parking sticker, the cost to park at a Collier County beach is $10. Be sure to look for parking meters in each lot. As of the date of this blog, Collier County does not offer a pay-by-plate parking option.

While most beaches require a parking fee or sticker, some areas offer free parking. Currently, you can park for free at Barefoot Beach Access, North Gulfshore Access, and Conner Park. Keep in mind that Barefoot Beach Preserve remains closed due to the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, and there is no official reopening date set by the Parks and Recreation staff.

With the winter season approaching, beachgoers in Collier County have plenty of options for parking at their favorite beaches. Make sure to get your beach parking sticker if you qualify, and always adhere to parking regulations to ensure a smooth and enjoyable beach experience. And while some locations offer free parking, keep an eye out for updates on closed beach parking lots due to unforeseen circumstances.
