What is a parking and beach tally?
​A tally is a system Three Oaks Recreation Area uses to make it easier for the host and non-resident guests to pay fees for park amenities. Simply submit your guest list to prior to the date of your event. Parking: Staff will ask for the driver's name from your guest list. You will only be charged for the non-resident vehicles that pass through the gate. Beach: From your guest list, the Manager on Duty will give you the requested number of wristbands at your pavilion. Please return any unused wristbands for accurate charges. Tally fees can be taken out of your deposit and/or an invoice can be sent for the remaining balance.
