Four free state parks days left in 2022


Residents wanting to recreate have four days left in 2022 to enter state-managed lands for free. The next day is National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 24.

A Discover Pass, typically needed for vehicle access to state-managed land, will not be required on Washington State Parks (WSP), Washington State Department of Natural Resources and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife lands for four days in 2022. In addition to September 24, the remaining days are World Mental Health Day on Monday, October 10, Veterans Day on Friday, November 11 and Native American Heritage Day on Friday, November 25, according to a WSP press release. 

Local state-managed lands include Birch Bay State Park and Peace Arch Historical State Park. 

The state designated 12 free state park days in 2022. Discover Passes, which fund state parks, cost $30 for an annual pass and $10 for a one-day permit.
