June is almost upon is, and with it comes warmer weather for exploring outdoors. So outdoor enthusiasts get ready, because there are not one, but three free Washington State Park Days this June. Here’s when you can hit the trails for free.

On these select days next month, visitors can access state parks without requiring a Discover Pass, which is usually required for vehicle access to state recreation lands. This allows visitors to explore the natural beauty of the parks at no cost!

“Free days apply only to day use (not overnight stays or rented facilities),” says Washington State Parks. “Free days are valid at state parks and Washington State Departments of Natural Resources and Fish & Wildlife lands.”

Here are the June 2024 Discover Pass Free Days:

  • June 8th for National Get Outdoors Day
  • June 9th for Free Fishing Day
  • June 19th for Juneteenth

Following that, the next one will be in September on the 28th for National Public Lands Day.

Washington State Parks free days are a great way to get out and visit parks to see if you’d like to do a longer stay in the future. After all, there’s a lot that you can learn from a place in just a day and Washington has so many amazing parks that you should try to take advantage of as many of these free days as you can.

Washington has 124 state parks with some of the most popular being Deception Pass, Cape Disappointment, and Larrabee.
