Mushroom Harvest Rules
KPMS: photo 09

Each public land agency within Washington State has their own rules regarding harvesting mushrooms for personal use. Additionally, different regions under a jurisdiction may have different rules.

The following list covers the major agencies whose lands we use, and their rules as of 4/15/2016. The list is not guaranteed to be accurate, and is meant as a guideline.

If you have any doubts about the rules for a given harvest area, please contact the relevant agency and district. Inquire about access, permits, limits, seasons and any other special rules. Note that rules for commercial harvesting are entirely different.

This list was engendered by the much more thorough list from the Puget Sound Mycological Society's web site, and focuses on our harvest areas.
