You can visit any Washington State Park for free this Veterans Day.
Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is offering a free day on Thursday, Nov. 11. That means day-use visitors will not need a Discover Pass.
“We hope on Veterans Day, especially, the public will take the time to thank a veteran for his or her service to our country,” said State Parks Director Don Hoch. “And we’re pleased to honor those who served by recognizing this day with free entrance for all to state parks.”
A heads up, the Discover Pass will still be required to access lands managed by WDFW and DNR. And the fee-free day only applies to day-use access by vehicle, not overnight stays or rented facilities.
