State Parks Account

Per state law, we automatically include a $5 donation to Washington State Parks in your yearly tab renewal fees.

To donate, simply renew your tabs and pay the amount shown.

Your donation to the State Parks Account keeps state parks open. With your support, more than 100 state parks all over Washington provide beautiful settings for camping, picnicking, hiking, bicycling, boating, or just relaxing in the peace and quiet of nature.
