Parking Information

 
For both Mackinaw City and St. Ignace parking options – if you are parking a motorcycle, RV or vehicle with a trailer, arrangements will need to be made at the ticket office when you arrive.

Mackinaw City – Overnight Parking

NEW this year, we’ve added another convenient parking option. If you choose this premium parking, you will still go to our unloading area where our cast members will tag your luggage for the Island hotel. They will direct you to the ticket office to arrange for parking, or to the Online Ticket Exchange Center, where you can redeem your barcoded vouchers for your tickets and arrange for parking. Once complete, you will park your car in our dock parking lot, right on-site. The best part – you can take your keys with you and know that your car stays in that spot until your return.

This option is not available online and must be arranged at the ticket office when you arrive.

(When parking overnight, please arrive 30 minutes prior to your desired ferry departure time.)

An easy, full-service parking option. Go straight to the unloading area where our cast members will tag your luggage for your Island hotel. They will direct you to the ticket office to arrange for parking, or to the Online Ticket Exchange Center where you will redeem your barcoded vouchers. One of our cast members will take your vehicle from the unloading area to our off-site parking lot.

When returning, our Island Dock Staff will scan your barcoded claim check and your vehicle will be brought to our main lot, at the dock. You will receive a text message alert with the location of your vehicle and key claim procedures.

(This option offers unlimited in and out service. When parking overnight, please arrive 30 minutes prior to your desired ferry departure time.)

You can also park in our off-site open lot for free, for up to five nights. Go straight to the unloading area where our cast members will tag your luggage for your Island hotel. They will direct you to the ticket office to arrange for parking, or to the Online Ticket Exchange Center where you will redeem your barcoded vouchers. When at the ticket office, you will be given a tag to hang from your car mirror. This tag authorizes you to park in the off-site lot.

The lot is approximately four blocks away, with continuous shuttle service offered to deliver you back to the dock. Upon your return from the Island, you can take the shuttle back to the off-site lot to pick up your vehicle. This option is not available online and must be arranged at the ticket office when you arrive.

(If you choose to self park at the off-site lot, please arrive 45 minutes prior to your desired ferry departure time.)
