Summer is here and that means it’s time to explore the great outdoors. We know that between gear, driving and park passes, getting out there isn’t always super affordable. But this month is an excellent time to go because you can actually visit state parks for free on 3 separate days this month!

Technically it was four days but the first free day has already passed. You can look forward to free state park entrance on June 12th, 13th, and 19th. The 12th and 13th are unique as typically the free entrance only applies to one-day trips. But it looks like you might be able to do an overnight if you pay for the spot. Info on that is light, so be sure to call ahead to make sure.

Either way, free state park 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.
