Didn't end up getting a valid reservation, but called the Forest Service and confirmed that I only needed one for Summit Lake, Goliath Park, and the Summit parking lot. I noticed a parking lot that sits about .25 miles to the northeast of Summit Lake (this does not show up on maps, but you can see on satellite imagery). I asked the nice lady that I spoke with about this lot, and she said no pass was necessary here.

We opted for the unmarked lot and were the first car there at ~5:30 AM. The Summit Lake lot was nearly full at the same time, and people had begun parking on the side of the road. For whatever reason, few people seemed to park in our lot throughout the day, and opted instead to park along the road or cram into the Summit Lake lot. When we returned, there were only 5 other cars there, and no parking ticket! Highly recommend this!
