Free vehicle admission to Washington State Parks will be granted to everyone on Sunday, Aug. 25.
This is in recognition of the National Parks System’s 103rd birthday.
This “free day” means anyone wishing to visit a state park will not need a Discover Pass for the day.
Normally a day visit would cost $10. The legislation in 2011 that created the Discover Pass also required that State Parks designate up to 12 “free days” every year.
It should be noted that the free days only apply to state parks, not parks owned by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife or by the Department of Natural Resources.
Other free days in 2019 will be on Sept. 28 (National Public Lands Day) and on Nov. 11 (Veterans Day).
