Fee Free Days At Washington State Parks

Fee Free Days At Washington State Parks

Image title

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.
