Where do you need a Discover Pass to recreate on DNR-managed lands?

discover pass logoDNR manages 5.6 million acres of state trust lands, aquatic lands, and other state lands. More than 2 million acres of these lands are available for a wide variety of recreation opportunities including hiking, biking, horseback riding, off-road vehicle riding, hunting, fishing, paragliding, geocaching, and more.

To help you discover where you’ll need a Discover Pass on DNR-managed lands, we have posted four PDF maps on our website at www.dnr.wa.gov/recreation. One map shows Discover Pass-required areas for the entire state. The other three are divided into sections: northwest, northeast, and southwest. These sections allow you to zoom in a little closer to more accurately locate the information you need. You’ll need Adobe® Acrobat Reader to view these maps.

We’ve also included a link to a list of DNR-managed recreation lands requiring a Discover Pass. This list provides you with three different lookup options: by the name of a site or facility, by county, and by landscape or location.

As of July 1, the Discover Pass is required to recreate on lands managed by Washington State Parks, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, and DNR. Cartographers from the three agencies are hard at work developing an interactive map that will include the recreation lands managed by these agencies. We expect to roll out this map in the coming months.
