I absolutely love getting outside with my family. There is SO much beauty to explore in our great state – including over 100 state parks.

On Monday, Washington State Parks will be celebrating their 105th birthday! As their birthday gift to you, everyone will be allowed to access all Washington State Parks for FREE!

That’s right, on Monday March 19th, you will not need a Discover Pass to access Washington State Parks.

Click for a complete list of Washington State Park FREE Days!

State Parks in Clark County that typically require the use of a Discover Pass include:

  • Battle Ground Lake (We love the playground and hiking/walking trails at Battle Ground Lake!)
  • Paradise Point

Plan a day trip and head to:

  • Beacon Rock
  • Mt. St. Helens
  • Cape Disappointment

Access a complete list of Washington’s State Parks HERE.  (I spent some time browsing the Discover Pass website and added a handful of state parks to my Washington Bucket List!)


If you’re interested in getting out and exploring Washington State all year round, you can purchase a Discover Pass.  Discover Passes are $30 for an annual pass, or $10 for a single day use pass.

Please note, 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.
