Changes Other than Editing from Proposed to Adopted Version: The commission made changes to the proposed rules during the public hearing on June 9, 2000, as shown below:


NOTE TO CODE REVISER: (all changes appear as strikethrough)
(explanations appear underlined)
The commission made the following changes to the proposed rules during the June 9, 2000, public hearing:

WAC 352-32-070 Use of horses, llamas, sled dogs or similar animals for recreation. ...(6) Any person bringing a horse, llama, sled-dog or similar animal into a state park area shall clean-up and dispose of animal feces in parking lots, at trail heads and other central locations used by park visitors.

The above change was made to clarify language and according to the Assistant Attorney General for State Parks, these additional three words were not necessary.

WAC 352-32-235 Use of metal detectors in state parks. ... (6)...(b)... No item which is, or appears to be, of historical or archaeological significance, may be removed form the site at which it was found. ...

(6)(e) Conduct themselves with thoughtfulness, courtesy and consideration for others, and not interfere with other recreational activities. An operator shall not allow any emitted metal detector sound audible to other park users. from the Friday before Memorial Day through Labor Day.

The above change was made following a suggestion from the Federation of Metal Detectorists. It is their recommendation that no sound be audible from metal detecting devices at any time. The Commission agreed.

WAC 352-32-250 Standard fees charged. ... (2) Overnight camping - standard campsite; utility campsite; emergency campsite; overflow campsite; hiker/biker campsite; walk-in campsite; primitive campsite for nonmotorized or motorized vehicle - ...

(14) Water trail site permits -

(a) For unlimited use within the calendar year, the annual fee will be set by the director or designee after consultation with the water trail advisory committee.

(b) For one day/night use within the calendar year, the annual fee will be set by the director after consultation with the water trail advisory committee. (c) ...

(NOTE: The change in (14)(a) and (b) results from commission action take at its October 28, 1999, meeting to change the overnight water trail campsite fee to be equivalent to the primitive non-motorized campsite fee, replacing the previous per person fee.)

(15) In addition to the regular fee, a per night surcharge as published in the agency fee schedule shall be imposed for failure to pay the self-registration overnight facility fee;

The above change was made following a request made by the state parks director. The word "annual" should be removed from subsection (14)(b) in order to clarify the fee being referred to.

WAC 352-32-15001 Little Spokane River natural area -- Prohibited uses. ...

(f) Horseback riding. off trails designated for equestrian use.

The above change was recommended by a member of the public. The gentleman pointed out that the current language implied that some horseback riding was allowed when in fact, no horseback riding is allowed in this area under any circumstances.

AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending WSR 98-04-065, filed 2/2/98, effective 3/5/98)

WAC 352-32-030
Camping.

(1) Camping facilities of the state parks within the Washington state parks and recreation commission system are designed and administered specifically to provide recreational opportunities for park visitors. Use of park facilities for purposes which are of a nonrecreational nature, such as long-term residency at park facilities, obstructs opportunities for recreational use, and is inconsistent with the purposes for which those facilities were designed.

No person or camping party may use any state park facility for residence purposes, as defined (WAC 352-32-010).

(2) No person shall camp in any state park area except in areas specifically designated and/or marked for that purpose or as directed by a ranger.

(3) Occupants shall vacate camping facilities by removing their personal property therefrom no later than 1:00 p.m., if the applicable camping fee has not been paid or if the time limit for occupancy of the campsite has expired or the site is reserved by another party. Remaining in a campsite beyond the established checkout time shall subject the occupant to the payment of an additional camping fee.

(4) Use of utility campsites by tent campers shall be subject to payment of the utility campsite fee except when otherwise specified by a ranger.

(5) A campsite is considered occupied when it is being used for purposes of camping by a person or persons who have paid the camping fee within the applicable time limits or when it has been reserved through the appropriate procedures of the reservation system. No person shall take or attempt to take possession of a campsite when it is being occupied by another party, or when informed by a ranger that such site is occupied, or when the site is posted with a "reserved" sign. In the case of a reserved site, a person holding a valid reservation for that specific site may occupy it according to the rules relating to the reservation system for that park. In order to afford the public the greatest possible use of the state park system on a fair and equal basis, campsites in those parks not on the state park reservation system will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. No person shall hold or attempt to hold campsite(s), for another camping party for present or future camping dates, except as prescribed for multiple campsites. Any site occupied by a camping party must be actively utilized for camping purposes.

(6) One person may register for one or more sites within a multiple campsite by paying the multiple campsite fee. An individual may register and hold a multiple campsite for occupancy on the same day by other camping parties. Multiple campsites in designated reservation parks are reservable under the reservation system.

(7) In order to afford the general public the greatest possible use of the state park system, on a fair and equal basis, and to prevent residential use, continuous occupancy of facilities by the same camping party shall be limited. Campers may stay ten consecutive nights in one park, after which the camping party must vacate the site for three consecutive nights, April 1 through September 30, not to exceed thirty days in a forty-day time period. Provided that at the discretion of the park ranger the maximum stay may be extended to fourteen consecutive nights if the campground is not fully occupied. Campers may stay twenty consecutive nights in one park, after which the camping party must vacate the ((site)) park for three consecutive nights, October 1 through March 31, not to exceed forty days in a sixty-day time period. This limitation shall not apply to those individuals who meet the qualifications of WAC 352-32-280 and 352-32-285.

(8) A maximum of eight people shall be permitted at a campsite overnight, unless otherwise authorized by a ranger. The number of vehicles occupying a campsite shall be limited to one car and one recreational vehicle: Provided, That one additional vehicle without built-in sleeping accommodations may occupy a designated campsite when in the judgment of a ranger the constructed facilities so warrant. The number of tents allowed at each campsite shall be limited to the number that will fit on the ((designated or)) developed tent pad or designated area as determined by a ranger.

(9) Persons traveling by bicycles, motor bikes or other similar modes of transportation and utilizing campsites shall be limited to eight persons per site, provided no more than four motorcycles may occupy a campsite.

(10) Water trail camping sites are for the exclusive use of persons traveling by human and wind powered beachable vessels as their primary mode of transportation to the areas. Such camping areas are not subject to the campsite capacity limitations as otherwise set forth in this section. Capacities for water trail camping sites may be established by the ranger on an individual basis and are subject to change based upon the impacts to the area. All persons using water trail camping sites shall have in their possession a valid annual water trail permit or have paid the required nightly fee.

(11) Overnight stays (bivouac) on technical rock climbing routes will be allowed as outlined in the park's site specific climbing management plan. All litter and human waste must be contained and disposed of properly.

(12) Emergency camping areas may be used only when all designated campsites are full and at the park ((manager's)) ranger's discretion. Persons using emergency areas must pay the ((primitive)) applicable campsite fee and must vacate the site when directed by the park ((manager)) ranger.

(13) Designated overflow camping areas may be used only when all designated campsites in a park are full and the demand for camping in the geographic area around the park appears to exceed available facilities. Persons using overflow camping areas must pay the ((primitive)) applicable campsite fee. ((If a nearby flush comfort station is available, persons using overflow camping areas must pay the standard campsite fee.))

(14) ((Except as provided in WAC 352-32-310,)) Any violation of this section is an infraction under chapter 7.84 RCW.
