WEEKEND: State parks waive entrance fees Saturday, Tuesday

Peninsula Daily News

Visitors to state parks can do so for free Saturday and Tuesday.

Saturday is a “spring free day.” Tuesday’s free day is in recognition of Earth Day.

On these days, people entering a state park will not need a Discover Pass.

On the North Olympic Peninsula, several state parks are open now.

They are Bogachiel near Forks, Dosewallips near Brinnon, Fort Flagler on Marrowstone Island, Fort Townsend and Fort Worden in Port Townsend, and Sequim Bay near Sequim.

Anderson Lake, which was closed Nov. 1, is scheduled to reopen the last Saturday of this month.

Display pass

During free days at state parks, a Discover Pass still will be required to be displayed on vehicles on lands managed by the state departments of Natural Resources and Fish and Wildlife.

Annual Discover Passes are $30 each. One-day passes are $10 each. Add $5 to the cost of the annual pass or $1.50 to that of the one-day pass for transaction and dealer fees if purchased at a license dealer, by phone or online.

The fine for not displaying the pass is $99.

For more information, visit www.discoverpass.wa.gov.

The Discover Pass may be purchased online at www.discoverpass.wa.gov, by phone at 866-320-9933 or in person from any of nearly 600 recreational license vendors.
