PUBLIC LANDS -- Federal and state land managers offer fee-free entry days to parks, forests, U.S. Bureau of Land management lands, refuges and other national interest lands where fees are charged on certain holidays scattered through the year.
- The last big freebie of the year is Nov. 8-11 -- Veterans Day Weekend -- with free entry to virtually all the federal public lands. NOTE: National Parks are offering free entry only on Nov. 11.
- Washington State Parks will waive the Discover Pass requirement on Nov. 11.
The fee waivers do not cover expanded amenity or user fees for things such as camping, boat launches, transportation or special tours.
