The winter schedule is available online at http://parks.state.wa.us/158/Winter-Schedule. More than 90 parks will remain open seven days a week, while about 18 parks are closed until dates in March, April or May, due to weather and other circumstances.
Each year, Washington State Parks identifies which parks will remain open and which will offer limited or partial services, such as reduced camping sites and restrooms. Some parks are open only on weekends and holidays. Campers should be aware that some state parks may shut off water systems, even if the park is open. Some boat launches are closed, and some docks are removed for the winter.
State Parks works to maintain services within its current operating budget and to provide a geographic balance of services across the state. Parks that close in the winter generally close in October or early November and reopen in the spring when weather and conditions allow.
Some parks are open, but specific areas within the park are closed, and some are open on weekends and holidays only.
