Grab your hiking boots! Free Fun Weekend is June 1 and 2 for all Wisconsin state parks.

Admission to all parks is waived for two days. That means visitors can fish, hike, bike and utilize all trails at no cost.

Further, fishing licenses are not needed to fish in any waters.

"Wisconsin is a beautiful playground, especially in summer," said DNR Secretary-Designee Preston Cole. "Not many states can boast the array of natural recreation opportunities we have here. Fun Free Weekend is the perfect time to enjoy our state parks, forests and trails. I urge you to get out and explore, you might just like it."
