Baker's Pasture Alternative Parking

Please Note: Baker’s Pasture is closed for the 2023 Season.

Baker’s Pasture at Crane Beach is an alternate Crane Beach parking area being used temporarily to accommodate high demand for beach access, and is reserved for Trustees Crane Beach Permit Holders.

This is an exquisite stretch of beach that is a perfect place for those who don’t need the amenities of the bath house and retail options of the main beach. Here, you’ll enjoy one of the finest beaches and outdoor recreation destinations on the East Coast. With its clean, inviting water, miles of shoreline, and mesmerizing views, Crane Beach has been a favorite with the ocean-loving public for generations.

Bakers Pasture is closed on weekdays for the remainder of the 2023 Summer Season. It will remain open on weekends and Memorial Day Monday.
