Overnight parking at train station

We are taking Shoreline East from Old Saybrook and are unclear if we can leave our car overnight for 2 nights in the free parking area.

If we cannot, is that a paid parking area nearby? And how much does it cost compared to New Haven?

Any insight would be appreciated.

I looked it up, and it states that there are 40 long term parking spaces in old saybrook and that a parking fee may apply. No idea how much it would be.

While that post is from 2011, some of the discussion is from this past year. as I mention in that thread, there is a commuter lot which is a daily lot and overnight parking is not allowed. The lot adjacent to the businesses does allow overnight parking, but there's a fee. It is overseen by the owner of the commercial property. They leave envelopes on cars left overnight with payment info...not clear what the fee is, but someone mentioned they were charged $10. The setup is described here: shorelineeast.com/stations/old-saybrook-stat…

We opted to go to New Haven. Too unclear if we'd get in trouble for leaving our car in Old Saybrook for 2 nights. Plus there are more options for trains from from New Haven so it gave us more flexiblity.

Thanks for your input!
