A Washington County Vehicle Permit is now required at Point Douglas Park, located just above the confluence of the St. Croix and Mississippi River.

Permits cost $7 for one day or $30 for a year.

Electronic pay stations have installed at two locations along the park. One is solar and one is the standard electric-powered machine. If an annual permit is purchased at a pay station, the receipt must be mailed or brought into a Park Office to be redeemed for a vehicle sticker. Permits can also be purchased online.

Vehicle permits are not required in any park on the first non-holiday Tuesday of each month, or on the first Saturday of June, which is “Explore Your Parks Day” in Washington County.
