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 13 — Free Fishing Day
- Aug. 25 — National Park Service Birthday
- Sept. 25 — National Public Lands Day
- Nov. 11 — Veterans Day

- Free days apply only to day use (not overnight stays or rented facilities)
- A Discover Pass will still be required on these days to access lands managed by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Make sure to check out the FREE National Park days too, as they will often overlap!
