State Parks Free Days

By January 1, 2023

Each year Washington State Parks has several free days when the Discover Pass is not required to visit a state park.  It is a great time to check out all the greatness that these parks have to offer! 

Washington State Parks offers several "free days" when a Discover Pass is not required to visit a state park. 

The following are the 2023 State Parks' free days:
Jan. 1 — First Day Hikes; New Year’s Day
Jan. 16 — Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
March 9 -- Billy Frank Junior's Birthday
March 19 — State Parks’ 110th Birthday
April 22  — Earth Day
June 10 — National Get Outdoors Day
June 11 — Free Fishing Day
June 19 — Juneteenth
Sept. 23 — National Public Lands Day
Oct. 10 -- World Mental Health Day
Nov. 11 — Veterans Day
Nov. 25 — Autumn Day

Note that free days apply only to day use (not overnight stays or rented facilities), and a Discover Pass is required on these days to access lands managed by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Sno-Park permits are still required on free days at designated Sno-Parks during the winter season.
