ILWACO, Wash. — On Saturday, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission invites people to celebrate National Public Lands Day with a free visit to Washington’s state parks. Day-use visitors will not need a Discover Pass to visit state parks.
The Discover Pass legislation provided that there are up to 12 free days each year when the pass would not be required to visit state parks; it is still required to access lands managed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and Department of Natural Resources on these days.
Free days apply only to day-use access by vehicle, not overnight stays or rented facilities.
