Stumped about a gift? Discover Pass fits the bill

The Discover Pass makes a great gift for the recreationists on your list.

When you purchase the Discover Pass as a gift, you get to choose the start date, so your recipient can take advantage of an entire year of outdoor adventure.

The Discover Pass provides access to millions of acres of recreation sites, including parks, trailheads, water access points and wildlife watching and heritage sites in Washington state.

The Discover Pass or a daily fee of $10 is required to park at any state park or recreation site, including Lime Kiln, Moran and Spencer Spit state parks.

Whether you’re a grandparent wondering what to give your adult children and grandchildren, or a friend looking for a stocking stuffer (try tucking one into a pair of new hiking socks?) the Discover Pass is a great gift idea and a great value, too.

Just $30 buys a year of outdoor fun, and a single pass can be transferred between two vehicles. For more information or to purchase, visit or call (866) 320-9933.
