Metal Detecting

Metal detecting is permitted at more than 60 state parks throughout Washington. Users of metal detectors must register first with Washington State Parks and comply with posted regulations. The registration form, rules, and a list of parks that allow detecting may be found in the Metal Detecting in Washington State Parks brochure, which is available from park rangers at 360-902-8500 or from the Washington Telecommunications Relay Service at 800-833-6388.

Metal detecting areas vary in each park. Some parks allow detecting in developed public-use areas and unoccupied campsites, while other parks allow detecting in specific areas only.
