State Park Free Days

State Park Free Days



Deception Pass State Park
41229 State Route 20
Oak Harbor, WA 98277 United States

Whidbey and Camano Islands are home to some of the most beautiful state parks in Washington, including the most visited of all (Deception Pass!). Usually, a Discover Pass is required for entry, but take note of these 12 special dates where entry and parking for day use is completely free! This year, more than ever, we need outdoor activity and natural beauty, and each island has great choices. If you miss the free days, an annual Discover Pass (including fees) is $35 or daily for $11.50. Let’s get outside!
