Washington State Parks schedule free days

Washington State Parks will offer free days where visitors won’t have to display a Discover Pass when visiting a state park.

The next free day is March 19. Other free days are April 19, April 22, May 11, June 7 and 8, June 14, Aug. 25, Sept. 27 and Nov. 11.

The free days are consistent with legislation that created the Discover Pass, which is a $30 annual or $10 per day permit that allows visitors into state parks along with lands managed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Department of Natural Resources. The legislation stated that the park system could designate up to 12 free days throughout the year.

Visitors will still need a Discover Pass when they visit department of natural resources and fish and wildlife lands.
