Parking Information
Parking Enforcement

In order for all civilian and military personnel to obtain parking on Naval Base Kitsap installations, members must register their vehicle with the base at the parking office or visitor control center, have a valid NBK parking permit, a Washington state disabled parking placard or plate, or a military parking decal affixed to their vehicle. Additionally, all personnel must have current vehicle insurance and vehicle registration and available in the vehicle at all times.

Due to the limited parking availability onboard NBK and an estimated four personnel needing a parking spot, it’s trusted upon everyone to be courteous to those with proper credentials to park in marked areas.

All vehicles onboard NBK must be registered on base through the Visitor Control Center or the Parking Office.

There is no open parking from 5:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Parking passes are required to park on NBK-Bremerton.

NBK strictly enforces these policies, so please be sure you those in your command and work centers are in compliance.

For any parking complaints please call the parking office during normal business hours or email at
