Free Washington State Park Days in 2021

Update: A free Washington State Park day is coming up on Friday March 19, 2021.


There are a number of fee-free days this year in 2021 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).

Fee-Free Days at Washington State Parks in 2021:

  • Jan. 1 — First Day Hikes; New Year’s Day
  • Jan. 18 — Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • March 19 — State Parks’ 108th Birthday
  • April 3 — Springtime free day
  • June 5 — National Trails Day
  • June 12 — National Get Outdoors Day
