Enjoy the outdoors all year long!
Do you have your free day use parking pass from Chelan County PUD? It’s good at Daroga, Lincoln Rock and Wenatchee Confluence State Parks and lets you park for free when you are enjoying a visit for swimming, picnicking or just playing at the park.
Any Chelan PUD residential electric customer or a resident in Chelan County can apply. There is one pass per family available. Apply below to have a pass sent to you in the mail or you may also apply in person at one of our local offices. Passes will be issued beginning Jan. 2 thru September 28, 2018. 2018 PUD passes will be good through Dec. 31, 2018.
If you already have a Discover Pass because you use State Parks in other parts of the state, you do not need a Chelan PUD pass. Discover Passes can be used at the three PUD parks. However, the PUD pass can only be used at Wenatchee Confluence, Daroga and Lincoln Rock parks.
Chelan PUD has three parks managed by Washington State Parks and Recreation – Daroga, Lincoln Rock and Wenatchee Confluence. All three locations require a $30 Discover Pass for day-use parking. State Parks has managed these three locations for more than 30 years on behalf of the PUD. In an agreement with the PUD, State Parks will allow free day-use parking with the PUD Pass. Fees still apply for boat launch or camping activities.
The Day Use Pass was included as part of the PUD’s 2015 strategic plan that identified some Public Power Benefit programs to offer Chelan County residents. The goal is to provide programs that improve the quality of life for residents and provide the best for the most for the longest period of time. So long as the PUD has available revenues and after all PUD obligations and debt repayment requirements are met, we will continue to look at ways to provide Public Power Benefits.
