What’s new in 2014?

Based on input from our customers, several changes are being made in the 2014 recreation access program.  Please read below for details.

 

Permit sales –

Current holders of motorized recreation access permits will have the opportunity to purchase their permits before permits are put on sale for the general public.  All existing permit holders may purchase their permit during the specified time and be guaranteed a permit, making it easier to schedule around work and other obligations.  There will not be a rush to purchase your permit; permits can be purchased any time during the presale period for a specific area.

Permittees who have a valid email on file will be emailed a link for secure access to the web site prior to the presale date.  Permit sales will be staged by area based on the following schedule:

     October 28 – November 6  Eatonville permit presale for existing permit holders

     November 7 – 15  Kapowsin motorized permit presale for existing permit holders

     November 18  Eatonville permit sales begin for general public

     November 21  Kapowsin permit sales begin for general public

     December 9  Snoqualmie motorized permit sales begin

     December 16  White River motorized permit sales begin

In order to get permit sales away from the busy holiday season, 2014 permits will be valid through March 30, 2015.  The 2015 permit sales will begin early in the year rather than being sold late the prior year.

The permit pre-sale process requires that you have a username and password for the web site to sign in.  Your username and password will be emailed to you when permit presales begin.  Make sure to save them!

There is one last change that has been brought to our attention -- PayPal may no longer provide an option to purchase without registering for an account.  You may need a username and password to establish an account.  This change was made without our knowledge and we do apologize for the inconvenience.

 

Kapowsin –

The cost of Kapowsin permits will increase to $375 from $350.  Kapowsin permits have been the same price for many years.

 

Eatonville –

The number of permits to be sold will increase to 300, with up to 200 (the quantity sold in 2013) to be pre-sold to existing permit holders.  This means that if you were not able to purchase a 2013 permit, there will still be permits available for sale when permits go on sale for the general public. The cost of permits will increase to $275.

 

Snoqualmie –

The cost of Snoqualmie motorized permits will increase from $225 to $250.  Snoqualmie permits have been the same price for many years.  Snoqualmie permits will not be presold to existing permit holders because the 2013 permits have not sold out.

The price for non-motorized access permits will stay the same in 2014.  The prices are $45 for an annual individual permit, $80 for an annual family permit, $8 for a day-use individual permit and $15 for a day-use family permit. 

 

White River

The White River permit program will continue in 2014. The only change in the program is a $25 increase in the motorized permit price, from $225 to $250.

The price for non-motorized access permits will stay the same in 2014.  The prices are $45 for an annual individual permit, $80 for an annual family permit, $8 for a day-use individual permit and $15 for a day-use family permit. 

 

Camping at Kapowsin and Snoqualmie –

The price of camping permits will remain the same at $200 for the season.
