The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission invite the public to enjoy the beauty of our outdoors during three state park “free days.”
The following days are free for day-use visits to state parks; visitors are not required to display a Discover Pass:
· June 7 — National Trails Day
· June 7-8 — Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) Free Fishing Weekend
· June 14 — National Get Outdoors Day
The Discover Pass legislation provided that state parks could designate up to 12 free days each year when the pass would not be required to visit state parks. The Discover Pass is still required to access lands managed by Washington Department of Fish and and Dept. of Natural Resources on these days.
The free days apply only to day use at state parks, not for overnight stays or rented facilities.
