In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Washington State Parks is making Jan. 19 and 20 the first of 12 “free days” in 2014 when visitors are not required to display the Discover Pass to visit a state park.
The free days are in keeping with legislation that created the Discover Pass, a $30 annual or $10 one-day permit required on state-managed recreation lands managed by Washington State Parks, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Department of Natural Resources.
The Discover Pass legislation provided that State Parks could designate up to 12 “free days” when the pass would not be required to visit state parks. The free days apply only at state parks. The Discover Pass is still required to access DFW and DNR lands.
