As promised, here’s an update on the Discover Pass, the pass you need to use Washington State parks and other state managed lands. Good news! You can now transfer the pass between two vehicles. Here’s the updated language straight from their site:
Q. Can I transfer one Discover Pass between two vehicles?
A. Yes, the annual Discover Pass is now transferable between two vehicles. For passes already printed, use ink to legibly write in a second license number, either in the license plate box or in a blank spot on the front of the pass. In the future, passes will be printed with two lines for license numbers. The pass is still only good for one vehicle at a time.
So far, this program has brought in much less money than was planned for, so hopefully this change will make it more popular. The pass can be purchased over the phone or at dealers (you’ll pay an extra fee), or from a ranger at a staffed park, or when you renew your vehicle license. There is no additional fee for the last two options. You can also buy a one time, day use pass, but the yearly one is a much better deal if you go to state parks even a couple times a year.
Got a favorite state park? I’d love it if you left a recommendation in the comments!
