Parking & Transportation

Plan in advance!

Online Parking Passes: sold out

Online Parking passes for the 2024 MSP Polar Bear Plunge at Sandy Point State Park are SOLD OUT. There will be a VERY LIMITED quantity of physical parking passes for the Yellow Lot ($10) for sale onsite at Sandy Point State Park on Saturday, February 3rd. We do not recommend relying on these passes to get into the Plunge, as they are very limited.


If you want to take your chance at getting a physical pass, navigate to 1100 E College Pkwy, Annapolis, MD 21409. After you get off and go over Route 50, most all vehicles will be turning right to enter the park. Keep driving straight through, remaining on Oceanic Dr. After the stop sign proceed to a pop-up tent at Park Headquarters.

Polar Express Shuttle

A free Polar Express Shuttle System will be available and we encourage all Plungers and spectators to use this fast, efficient mode of transportation to and from the Park. Handicapped Accessible buses are available as part of the free Polar Express Shuttle System to and from Sandy Point, so accommodations are available to all participants and spectators, both on-site and to and from our satellite lots. Beginning at 8:00 AM, Polar Express shuttles will be transporting passengers to Sandy Point State Park from:


Cool Schools Plungers!
