  1. State Parks Discover Pass Free Days
    Washington State Parks offers several "free days" when a Discover Pass is not required to visit a state park.

    Following are 2016 free days:

    • Jan. 1: State Parks' First Day Hikes
    • Jan. 17-18: Martin Luther King Day
    • March 19: State Parks' 103rd birthday
    • March 26: Saturday Spring Day
    • April 22: Earth Day
    • May 8: Sunday Spring Day
    • June 4: National Trails Day
    • June 11: National Get Outdoors Day
    • Aug. 25: National Park Service Birthday
    • Sept. 24: National Public Lands Day
    • Nov. 11: Veterans Day
    Please note, free days apply only to day use (not overnight stays or rented facilities). A Discover Pass is still required to access lands managed by the Washington state departments of Natural Resources and Fish & Wildlife on these days. Sno-Park permits are still required on free days at designated Sno-Parks during the winter season.

When you explore DNR-managed lands, you'll find more than 1,000 miles of trails and 160 sites across 2.2 million acres of state trust lands. It's part of the 5.6 million acres DNR manages to generate revenue for public services and preserve forests, streams and habitat.
