  1. State Park free days

    Washington State Parks offers several "free days" when a Discover Pass is not required to visit a state park. Following are the remaining 2019 State Parks free days:
    • Jan. 1 — First Day Hikes; New Year’s Day
    • Jan. 21— Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
    • March 19 — State Park’s birthday
    • April 20— Spring day
    • April 22 — Earth Day
    • June 1 — National Trails Day
    • June 8 — National Get Outdoors Day
    • June 9 — Fishing Day
    • Aug. 25 — National Park Service Birthday
    • Sept. 28— National Public Lands Day
    • Nov. 11 — Veterans Day
    • Nov. 29— Autumn day
    Please note, free days apply only to day use (not overnight stays or rented facilities). June 8 and 9 are free days on lands managed by State Parks and Fish & Wildlife  (a pass is still required on lands managed by DNR). A Discover Pass is still required to access lands managed by the Washington state departments of Natural Resources and Fish & Wildlife on all other 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.
