Individuals cannot pay in advance for a period of time nor go back into the system and pay for a historical date range. Customers need to start their session when they arrive at the airport and pay going forward.
If you have forgotten to pay, please call the airport administrative office (320-650-3251) to communicate your vehicle information, then stop by the admin office to pay upon returning.
When using the pay stations, you do not need to put the paper receipt in your car.
We appreciate your business and are happy to offer $7.00/day pay-by-license-plate parking to those who utilize our airport. You can park while away on your trip. There’s no need to notify the airport for short trips - just park in our large main parking area in front of the airline terminal. For longer stays, park on the west side of the building to the right of the airline terminal and enjoy your trip! It’s outdoors, safe, well-lit, conveniently located, and simple.
Please note: PARKING IS LIMITED at busy travel times of the year (around any holiday, school break or spring break). Like any airport, there’s a constant rotation of passengers in/out to open up spaces. We recommend that local folks get a ride to/from the airport or use taxi, and that others arrive at the airport early, certainly more than two hours before your flight, to have the greatest chance of a parking spot. We will do our very best to accommodate with the resources available.
If you are staying for more than 30 days, please contact the administrative office, 320-255-7292, or email the Airport, and leave word of your name, contact phone number, vehicle make and model, license plate number, destination, departure date and estimated return date so that we know that the vehicle hasn’t been abandoned when doing our parking lot inspections.
As a special request, if you are physically able, please use the two overflow parking lots or park toward the back (north) of the main parking lot farthest from the front doors to leave space for our less-mobile customers. General aviation parking is marked and commercial passengers should not use these spots. We only have six handicapped spaces and need many more than that with the range of clientele we serve. Thank you!
