Free Washington State Park Days in 2017
There are a number of fee-free days this year in 2017 at Washington State Parks to take advantage of and it’s a great chance to explore new parks. On regular days, you would pay $10 to get in to a state park for the day or $30 for a yearly pass. (By the way, these make excellent gifts – my husband got a Discover Pass yearly pass for a Christmas gift last year & we used it a number of times and loved that as an awesome experience gift).
This weekend, Saturday April 15th is a fee-free day at the state parks & then the following weekend, Saturday April 22nd is another fee-free day at the state parks.This is a time when it may not be too crowded for one of the free days, too, because of the colder temperatures so you could explore a new park!

- April 15 — Spring day
- April 22 — Earth Day
