The Discover Pass is more than just a parking pass – it’s your ticket to unlimited access to millions of state managed lands across Washington state for a year.
When you buy a Discover Pass, you are helping Washington State Parks, Department of Natural Resources and Department of Fish and Wildlife help preserve and conserve public lands for future generations to come.
Whether you’re an avid hiker, fisher, camper or just love to relax out in nature, your state-managed lands are working to make the outdoors accessible for everyone, and Washington state lands have something for everyone and are for everyone.
