Fees are charged year round for day-use access, trailer dump and use of watercraft launch sites at Washington state parks. The daily launch fee is $7, the day-use fee is $10 a day or $30 for an annual pass and the trailer dump fee is $5 per use. To save money, you can purchase a Natural Investment Permit, valid for one year from date of purchase. The fee is $80.

Please note: The Natural Investment Permit is accepted in lieu of a Discover Pass for day use only at Washington state parks. It is not valid on lands managed by the Washington state departments of Natural Resources and Fish & Wildlife.
