Visitors usually need a Discover Pass to visit Washington state parks, but there are a dozen days when fees are waived. Most of the free days this year are on holidays or observances, including New Year’s Day, January 18 and 19 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, March 19 in celebration of Washington State Parks’ 102nd birthday, April 22 for Earth Day, June 6 for National Trails Day, June 13 for National Get Outdoors Day, August 25 for the National Park Service’s birthday, September 26 for National Public Lands Day, and November 11 for Veterans Day. The remaining free days are a springtime Saturday, April 4, and a springtime Sunday, May 10.
At other times of the year, visitors who wish to visit recreation lands managed by Washington State Parks need a $30 annual Discover Pass or a $10 one-day permit.
