Boat launch fees & stickers

How much do launch passes cost?
A daily launch fee of $5.00 is required or $35.00 annual fee ($30 annual fee for seniors ages 62 and over).
Where can I buy a boat launch sticker?
Annual boat launch stickers can be purchased at the Park & Recreation Department, 925 S. Sixth Street, Monday thru Friday during regular business hours or City Hall, 1st Floor, 335 S. Broadway Street, Monday thru Friday during regular business hours.
Where can I use my launch passes? 
The annual Launch Pass is valid at all boat launches operated by the City of Green Bay, City of De Pere and Brown County.
How do I need to display my annual launch sticker? 
The annual boat launch sticker must be permanently affixed to the backside of the trailer winch post. If the design of your trailer prohibits the clear view of the sticker, the sticker should be placed on the left side of the winch post in a visible location. An additional sticker is available for $5 for a second trailer only if both boats are registered to the same person. You must provide your registration receipt from your first sticker and proof of ownership of both boats to purchase the second trailer sticker. Registration must be current.

I'm selling my trailer, what should I do with my sticker? 
If you sell or transfer ownership of the trailer a $5 replacement sticker can be obtained by removing the old sticker from the trailer and returning it to the location you purchased it. You must return the old sticker to receive the replacement sticker. If the sticker is not available to return you must contact the Brown County Park Department at 448-6242.
