The tournament headquarters is area #12. We recommend using the State Parking lot which opens at 5:00am. Parking is $10 dollars for the day (If you're camping at Doheny you should already have a parking pass taped to the inside of your windshield). We've made arrangements to have both a parking attendant and Park Ranger at Doheny at 5am. Please do not pull into the park before 5:00am. If for some reason you were to pull in the park before the parking attendant arrived, please be sure to retrieve a pass as soon as they open. Vehicles without a pass will be cited. Please do not use the adjacent harbor parking lot or launch and land from the boat ramps.
