Where Can I Park in Kemah?

The official City of Kemah parking lot located at 604 Bradford Ave, Kemah, TX 77565 is covered by ParkMobile. The city parking lot is across the street from Kemah’s famed Lighthouse District, with easy access to bars, shopping, and it’s also one block away from the Kemah Boardwalk.

How Much is Parking?

Parking rates vary depending on the season, and peak times may be more expensive than the offseason. During the Spring Break busy season, (from March 4 – March 27th, 2022), ParkMobile will charge $10 a day to park in the main city parking lot. From the hours of 10 AM to 9 PM, you will need to pay for parking, but any time outside of these hours, parking in this lot is free.
