Three steps to experiencing 2.2 million acres of DNR-managed state trust lands throughout Washington State:
- Buy or earn your Discover Pass – your ticket to Washington's Great Outdoors. With the Discover Pass, you can park at more than 140 DNR-managed recreation sites and contribute toward their support.
- Know Before You Go. Keep it fun with safe and sustainable recreation. The more respectful visitors’ behavior, the more lands can be kept open for your use.
- Choose your destination! View DNR-managed recreation areas by region, county or major destination. Be sure to check for temporary fire, harvest or restoration closures.
Much of your DNR-managed lands serve to generate sustainable timber and other harvests (which primarily help fund public education and public needs.) Yet, we also manage these lands to provide fish and wildlife habitat, clean and abundant water and access to some of the most diverse recreation opportunities.
- Hike, motorcycle, horseback ride, mountain bike, or explore by off-road vehicle 1,100 miles of rustic DNR trails.
- Enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, picnicking or boating from 143 primitive DNR recreation sites.
- Experience low impact activities, such as hiking and classroom visits, within native ecosystems at more than 80 DNR-managed Natural Resource Conservation areas.
- Harvest wild edibles for your personal use on some DNR-managed lands.
