DNR waives recreation fees June 1-2

To help kick off summer and encourage family recreation, Wisconsin is offering free outdoor activities to residents and visitors June 1-2.

During this weekend, entry into the DNR’s 64 state parks, forests and recreation areas is free. Also, the state is waiving its fishing license requirements for the weekend and offering free fishing clinics around the state and loans of free fishing equipment.

All state trail pass fees on all DNR-owned properties are waived for ATV/UTV riders. Nonresident ATV/UTV owners do not need a trail pass on these days, either. All other rules and regulations still apply, and safety education certification is required for all UTV and ATV operators who were born on or after Jan. 1, 1988.
