there has been some good information and advice on this forum about federal and state passes. Rather than get both a NW Forest Service Pass and a Mt Ranier Park Annual Pass, I planned to get a federal Interagency Annual Pass for $80, thinking it would cover my needs when visiting forest service sites like Leech Lake, National parks, and BLM sites along the Yakima River lower canyon. Along with my State Discover Pass, I thought I would be covered for most everything. I stopped at the Naches forest service office to pick it up on the way to Leech Lake from the east side. When the transaction was nearly complete and I mentioned going to Leech lake, I was told the interagency pass does not cover the boat launch there, but a NW forest service pass would. Nor would the federal pass cover boat launches at the BLM sites along the yakima. Note, I am not talking about the disability federal pass or the retired federal pass. Anyway, the federal Interagency Annual Pass no longer looked like the value or hassle free option I thought it would be, so I did not get it. Federal web sites are less than clear exactly what is excluded from coverage by the Interagency Annual Pass and the web sites for specific locations generally don't clarify what passes apply to what either. Not a rant here. But maybe someone here has more information that can clarify. I am not certain I got totally correct information about Leech lake or the BLM sites on the Yakima river. Jay P.S. here is what the forest service web site says about these passes: Interagency Annual Pass Costs: $80 Annually Benefits Honored nationwide at all Forest Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, and US Fish & Wildlife Service sites charging entrance or standard amenity fees. Interagency Annual Passes do NOT cover expanded amenity fees or special recreation permits. Standard Amenity Fees Examples: Picnic areas, developed trailheads, destination visitor centers Explanation: Typically, standard amenity fees are day use fees, often covered by a day or annual pass. Each site or area must contain six "amenities," which are picnic tables, trash receptacle, toilet, parking, interpretive signing and security. Expanded Amenity Fees Examples: Campgrounds, highly developed boat launches and swimming areas, cabin or lookout rentals. Services like hookups, dump stations, special tours, transportation systems and reservation services. Explanation: Provides direct benefits to individuals or groups.
