Visitors with NH State Parks License Plates can make online reservations as well. When making a reservation you can select your pass/plate type and the admission or parking fee will be removed. Plate holders will still be charged a $1 transaciton fee to use the online reservation system.  There are a limited number of parking spaces set aside for parks plate and season pass holders that do not have a reservation. This does not guarantee space will be available when you arrive at the park.
