Reserve camping, purchase Parks merchandise and more
OLYMPIA – June 2, 2021 – Washington State Parks announces it is now selling gift cards that can be used to reserve campsites, cabins and vacation homes and purchase Parks merchandise, and more.
Gift cards will be available in plastic or electronic form. Electronic gift cards can be purchased online. Plastic cards can be purchased in person at State Parks’ Headquarters building at 1111 Israel Road S.W., Tumwater. Due to current COVID precautions, those wishing to purchase a plastic gift card should contact Parks’ Information Center to schedule an appointment at (360) 902-8844, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Later this year, people will be able to buy plastic gift cards at Washington state parks.
In addition to using the gift cards for reservations and Parks merchandise, people may use them to purchase Discover Passes through the State Parks reservation system — at Parks Tumwater headquarters and at state parks. The gift card is not valid for Discover Passes purchased from third-party vendors. Gift cards also are not valid at Washington state parks’ concessions.
Both the electronic and plastic gifts cards may be reloaded and added to Parks customers’ accounts.
With the introduction of the new gift card program, State Parks is retiring its gift certificate program, also known as “Park Dollars.” However, gift certificates that have been purchased will still be honored.
