Limited free trailer parking is available at the route 50 Park & Ride located at the south side of route 50 just before you cross the bridge into Ocean City. Additionally many hotels are offering free trailer parking. Please check with your OC accomodations or call the visitor center for a list of places offering trailer parking, 1-800-OC-OCEAN.

  • During Cruisin Ocean City & Endless Summer Cruisin trailer parking will be allowed on public streets (other than Baltimore Ave) with an event Trailer Parking Permit.
  • Trailer Parking Permits can be purchased during the event for registered participants only. The permit fee is $50, and can be paid by cash or a check payable to “The Town of Ocean City”. Trailer permits can be picked up starting Wednesday morning of the event at the Convention Center.
  • As before, free trailer parking for registered participants will still be available at the Rt. 50 Park & Ride. This continues to be on a first come first serve basis & at your own risk.
