There will be free fishing and free admittance to Wisconsin State Parks this weekend as the DNR holds its annual Free Weekend on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5. The first weekend in June offers ample opportunities for people to enjoy the outdoors in Wisconsin.
Admission stickers are waived for Wisconsin's state parks and forests, trail passes normally required for those 16 or older who bike, in-line skate or horseback ride on state trails are waived and no fishing licenses are needed to fish state waters.
People who camp at state parks still need to pay for their campsites, and fees are not waived at Heritage Hill State Park, which is operated by a non-profit organization that charges a per-person admission to the park.
Wisconsin law requires those who use Wisconsin ATV or UTV trails to display either Wisconsin registration or a Non-resident Trail Pass, but on Free Fun Weekend. ATV-UTV owners do not need to have their machines registered in Wisconsin and nonresidents do not need to have a trail pass.
Find parks, forests and trails by searching the Department of Natural Resources website for "find a park" and find events by searching for "Get Outdoors," and then click on the "type" button and select "Free Fun Weekend".
