More than 100 Washington state parks reopen for day use on Tuesday, May 5th. Many others remain closed and there are restrictions and guidelines that must be followed. The list is at the bottom of this page.

 

State Parks asks that visitors:

 

  • Stay close to home.
  • Check the status of their favorite park or trail heads before heading out.
  • Come prepared with their own hand-washing supplies.
  • Follow State Parks’ guidelines for responsible recreation.

…and don’t plan on bathrooms being open!

 

Parks is also asking visitors to respect closures and only visit parks that are open for day use.

Camping is not yet reopened. Beaches and camping have been identified in Phase 2 of Gov. Jay Inslee’s reopening plan. Parks will coordinate with the governor’s office as they move toward that milestone.

 

The following is a list of state parks reopening May 5 for day-use recreation, followed by a list of parks that will remain closed until further notice.
