Frequently Asked Questions

I am not a resident of Midland, am I able to park my vehicle and trailer overnight?
Yes, as long as the applicable fees have been paid by using the parking terminal on site.
How do I purchase a boat launch parking permit?
Boat launch parking permits are $100 for Midland residents. Proof of residency is required.
Why do Midland residents need to purchase a pass this year?
This year we are introducing a Town of Midland Resident Fee of $100 per season, per registered vehicle and boat trailer, for the Pete Pettersen Boat Launch. This new fee allows the Town to offset costs for maintaining and repairing the launch, grading of the parking lot and staffing required for enforcement so that we can continue to provide this service that our residents and visitors enjoy. This new fee was approved by Council as part of the Town’s 2023 Budget in January 2023.
The non-resident fee to park at the boat launch with a boat trailer remains at $50.00 per day using the on-site pay and display machine. For residents who choose not to purchase a permit, the daily non-resident fee applies.
