Washington State Parks' Earth Day

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

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018, is Earth Day and a free day to visit Washington state parks.

The 2018 State Parks free days are as follows:

  • January 1 — First Day Hikes; New Year’s Day
  • January 15 — Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • March 19 — State Park’s 105th birthday
  • April 14 — Spring day
  • April 22 — Earth Day
  • June 2 — National Trails Day
  • June 9 — National Get Outdoors Day
  • June 10 — Fishing Day
  • Aug. 25 — National Park Service 102st Birthday
  • Sept. 29 — National Public Lands Day
  • Nov. 11 — Veterans Day
  • Nov. 23 — Autumn day

Please note, free days apply only to day use (not overnight stays or rented facilities). A Discover Pass is still required to access lands managed by the Washington state departments of Natural Resources and Fish & Wildlife on these days.

Sno-Park permits are still required on free days at designated Sno-Parks during the winter season.

The Discover Pass is a $30 annual or $10 one-day permit. Support state parks by purchasing your annual Discover Pass, and enjoy a whole year of outdoor fun on Washington’s beautiful state-managed recreation lands.
