Are Off-Road Permits Needed in Washington?

I am from Oregon and we require a off-road permit for certain areas like Sand Lake and parts of the TSF. We plan to do some wheeling in the near future in Washington and were wondering if they have a similar permit needed for certain areas? If so does anyone know where I can find out information on getting a permit and where it has to be used? Any information or URL would help.

Thanks

Not to my knowledge. I do alot of running around in the National Forest up here and you must have a street legal vehicle to be on the roads there. There are certain places where you need a forest pass, but those are mostly snow parks and stuff and they are clearly posted. State land requires a vehicle use permit that you hang from your mirror. You get them from the dept. of fish and wildlife (wdfw.wa.gov) they're $10 for resident buyers, unsure for out of state, but they shouldn't be that much. Hope this helps.

Only for ATVs and Motorcycles. As long as your Jeep has a plate you can wheel in WA. As was stated certain parks and forests require passes which can vary in price, but that goes for everyone, not just wheelers.

The trailheads, snow parks, fishing holes and forest areas need a pass, as well as needing a seperate pass for areas inside pinch gifford national forest, although just traveling around I have never been stopped by the forest department, it's when you stop for any lenght of time. Then they will talk to you to see what you are doing, like when my wife and I do rockhounding, we've had rangers ask us what we were doing.

Yeah, now any of the state parks, DNR, or fish and wildlife areas require the Discover Pass, whether your in-state or out-of-state... thanks to the irresponsible spending of our state government. They've now decided to grift the populace instead of getting their $#!+ together.

just a note...if you have a national parks pass (its like 80 bucks a year) you dont need the NW forest pass....The discover pass you need on any state owned land/park.

Good note. That is what I buy the national parks pass for $80. The discover pass you do need on NOT all state land/parks but where it it required.
