The Recreation and Conservation Office of Washington announced that is has created a new map that allows you to see lands managed by local, state and federal governments.

The Public Lands Inventory Web app displays more than 18.8 million acres of public lands used for recreation or wildlife habitat in Washington. Information also is displayed about the type of use, owner, legislative district, year of acquisition, purchase price and acreage.

What a great way to explore Washington!

To explore the map:

Interesting but very inaccurate... at least here locally.

I looked at the Morton Block checkerboard. I thought more of it had been traded back and forth to create more contiguous ownership. I might be wrong.

Yeah I zoomed in on Swanson Lakes out east. Its DFWL land and there's even a even a headquarters facility there, but its all in white on the map.
Maybe some "state lands" are privately owned but the state leases them?

I have a more pointed question.  Can anyone actually show evidence of an inaccuracy?  Public/private partnerships are often private land open to the public, are you sure that is not what you are seeing?

Well, here's one for Island County. On this page is a gallery of property use maps they offer. I know Snohomish and King Counties have similar online maps.

Yes. Mostly the info is out of date. Many omitted parcels.

There's a parcel on the CCC flats that has been owned by the USFS for at least a decade, based on the King County parcel viewer which I have always found to be relatively up-to-date and accurate. The RCO land ownership map shows that parcel as part of private land inholdings that are next door. It would be helpful if the RCO map showed the parcel boundaries.
