The State of Washington is home to some of the most beautiful places in the world, and the majority of them are just a few short hours from home. Our extended backyards lead to majestic mountains, tranquil beaches and old growth forests, many of which are located in State Parks or other protected lands. While typically the purchase of a Discover Pass or a $10 per day fee is required to visit Washington’s State Parks, the agency has designated nine more days in 2015 as “Fee Free” entry days.
During the “Fee Free” days at Washington State Parks, a Discover Pass is not required to visit a park, providing free access for all who choose to visit. The waived fees do not cover camping or rented facilities in the park, but do cover entry and the chance to explore some of Washington State’s most celebrated lands free of charge. The dates for 2015 are as follows:
March 19: State Parks’ 102nd birthday
April 4: Saturday Spring Day
April 22: Earth Day
May 10: Sunday Spring Day
June 6: National Trails Day
June 13: National Get Outdoors Day
August 25: National Park Service Birthday
September 26: National Public Lands Day
November 11: Veterans Day
Thurston County is blessed to be near some of the most iconic images of the Pacific Northwest. In just a few hours drive, we can be on a volcano, in an old lava tube, in a rainforest, along the rugged coast or on an island surrounded by orca whales. Thanks to our central proximity, we have the best of the region at our finger tips, and that includes our local state parks.

"Integrity, patience,and professionalism are words that describe Cari Schwisow. We were out of state buyers and Cari always went the extra mile for us. She previewed many homes for us, took countless photos and videos, which she sent to us for our approval, until we could find just the perfect home. Cari always followed thru every step in the purchase of our home. She kept in close communication with us, letting us know how every process of the sale was progressing. We will highly recommend her to our family and friends. It was a pleasure working with Cari"
