Water access areas

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) manages hundreds of water access areas throughout Washington, providing recreational access to the state’s lakes, rivers, and marine waters. Some WDFW owned properties are managed for water access by other agencies and are subject to those agencies’ rules.

A Discover Pass or Vehicle Access Pass is required at all WDFW recreation lands. A Vehicle Access Pass provides access only to WDFW lands and is provided with the purchase of many hunting and fishing licenses. Discover Passes can be purchased separately and provide access to additional state lands, including state parks.
