Parking pay stations accept CREDIT CARDS ONLY. Park your car and walk to the nearest pay station indicated by the Park Tahoe sign; follow the instructions. (If you do not have a credit card, prepaid credit cards are available for purchase at local grocery stores.)
- Enter license plate number when prompted on the screen (no state required). Plan to take a photo of your license plate number with your cell phone to remember it when at the pay station.
- If you have no license plate, enter the last four digits of the vehicle identification number (VIN).
- If you have a license plate with stacked letters or special symbols, enter only the full-size numbers and letters. Special symbols and spaces should not be entered.
- You can use any pay station in the lots. There is also a pay station located at the start of the trail. Just look for the Park Tahoe sign.
