Recreation planners
Led by the Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz, DNR actively plans recreation opportunities you and your family can enjoy for generations to come.  Through extensive involvement from local recreation groups, DNR volunteers, and the public, we take an integrated approach to providing fun and safe recreational opportunities on DNR-managed lands. DNR accomplishes this largely through the adoption of formalized recreation plans, which help to guide recreation on DNR-managed lands for the next 10 to 15 years.

DNR manages the Green Dot Road system in partnership with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and private landowners to provide opportunities for dispersed recreation such as camping, hunting, off-road vehicle riding and wildlife viewing.
