State Parks Account

How to donate

A $5 donation to keep state parks open is included in the total cost of your vehicle tab renewal per RCW 46.16A.090. 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.

How to opt out

If you don’t want to donate, you may opt out. This will subtract $5 from your tab renewal cost. Here's how:

  • While renewing online, we'll ask you if you want to donate. Choose “No, I don't want to donate. Please remove the $5 donation from my fees.”
  • If you renew by mail or in person, use the worksheet on the back of your renewal notice to subtract $5 from the total amount.

How to get a refund

If you make a donation in error, you may request a refund (parks.state.wa.us) from Washington State Parks.
