Free Washington State Park Days in 2020
Update: This Saturday October 10, 2020, is a fee-free day at Washington State Parks for World Mental Health Day!
There are a number of fee-free days this year in 2020 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).

- Jan. 1 — First Day Hikes; New Year’s Day
