Discover Pass: The Gift of Washington’s Great Outdoors

What’s your favorite Washington State Park?

For me, picking a favorite is nearly impossible. So I must be allowed a few favorites.

For family camping and kayaking, I like Penrose Point State Park on the shores of Puget Sound in Kitsap County. The park has over two miles of saltwater shoreline backdropped by forest.

For scenery and a cool history lesson, I adore Fort Flagler State Park on Marrowstone Island. Plus, I love to stop at Port Townsend-area farmers’ markets while I’m over there.

And when it comes to recreation – how on earth does one choose between the lush rainforest trails at Bogachiel State Park and the cross-country ski trails at Lake Wenatchee State Park?

Washington State Parks has it all–mountains, trails, streams, beaches, wildlife– and you can give it all with the gift of a Discover Pass.

Giving the Discover Pass as a gift is now even easier because the start date can be flexible. You choose the date you want the pass to start within a year from purchase. This new feature is available online and at stores that sell hunting and fishing licenses.

Ordering the Discover Pass online is easy, or you can purchase a gift Discover Pass in-person from any of nearly 600 recreational license vendors where state fishing and hunting licenses are sold. You can also purchase by phone at (866) 320-9933.
