Get Outside: Explore Washington State Parks for Free

Enjoy Washington's state parks for free throughout 2017.

You're invited as the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission hosts a free day for state park visitors on the following dates:

  • March 19 — Washington State Parks' 104th birthday
  • April 15 — springtime free day
  • April 22 — Earth Day
  • June 3 — National Trails Day
  • June 10 — National Get Outdoors Day
  • Aug. 25 — National Park Service's 101st birthday
  • Sept. 30 — National Public Lands Day
  • Nov. 11 — Veterans Day
  • Nov. 24 — autumn free day

Such free days keep with legislation that created the Discover Pass, a $30 annual or $10 one-day permit required on lands managed by Washington State Parks, and the Washington departments of Natural Resources (DNR) and Fish & Wildlife (WDFW).

On free days, a Discover Pass is still required to access lands managed by DNR and WDFW.
