Slaed has received our state parks pass (called the Discover Pass) for Christmas from me for the past 4 years! Confession: This is embarrassing, but at one point in time we actually avoided a state park parking lot (we parked elsewhere and walked in) in order to avoid paying the park’s fee! We laugh now at how silly this was–if only I could talk to my old self. Here’s what I’d say: “Just pay the stinkin’ $30 to park (and visit parks throughout the entire state) all you want for an entire year!”
Back to the 4 years of responsible state park patronage: We love our state parks pass, and can’t believe we ever went without it. We visit a state park at least once a month, and when we’re not exploring our home state of Washington, we seek out other state parks in our travels. Always a wonderful experience full of nature, history, and just enjoyment of our great outdoors.
4 Reasons Why We Love our State Parks Pass
1. Easy Payment.
2. Access to the Outdoors!
3. We’re supporting the park system.
4. It’s Motivating!
Wondering exactly what I’m talking about with some of these reasons? I’ve put together a video for you explaining why we love our state parks pass. And if you don’t want to listen to me ramble on about how much we love the state parks pass, just fast forward to about the 5 minutes and 30 seconds mark, and you can see some of our adventure at Scenic Beach State Park near Silverdale, Washington. We visited the park on New Year’s day as part of a day trip to the Kitsap Peninsula.
