Annual DNR Free Fun Weekend is June 6-7

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is hosting the 8th annual Wisconsin Free Fun Weekend. Park admission fees, fishing license and trail pass requirements will be waived on June 6-7 to encourage Wisconsinites to take advantage of and enjoy Wisconsin’s outdoors.

During Free Fun Weekend June 6-7: No state park admission stickers or trail passes are required.

People may fish without a fishing license or trout/ salmon stamps. All other fishing regulations apply.

ATV, UTVs, and OHMs are exempt from registration requirements. Resident and non-resident all-terrain vehicle operators do not need a trail pass to ride state ATV trails.

Capacity limits remain in effect at some properties to limit overcrowding.

Visitors are asked to recreate responsibly close to home and practice social distancing.

Before heading to a state park, trail or waterbody near you, here are some additional things to know: FISHING Residents and non-residents will not be required to have a fishing license or trout/salmon stamps. All 2020-2021 fishing regulations apply including bag and length limits.

Due to the public health risk, loaner equipment will not be available. Anglers should bring their own equipment and bait. Only anglers living in the same household (i.e. family members or roommates) should fish within six feet of one another.

Anglers are encouraged to have a backup plan in the event there is crowding or unsafe conditions where they plan to fish. We encourage everyone to fish safely and responsibly.
