Outdoor Lover's Free for All Weekend
Last Updated: 5/6/2013
Wisconsin offers so many ways to enjoy the beautiful outdoors and natural resources. To promote the fantastic recreational opportunities that can be found right here in Wisconsin, a number of special events offering free or reduced costs for participation will take place the weekend of June 1-2, 2013.
Fall in love with what Wisconsin has to offer at the first annual Free Wheel’n Weekend. Whether you are an avid rider from out of state or you are local but have not used the local trail system, discover the thrill of a trail ride during the registration free weekend. For the weekend of June 1-2, Wisconsin’s public ATV/UTV trails are open free of charge to riders from out of state as well as Wisconsinites whose machines are registered for private or agricultural use. Around the state, special events are planned from guided trail rides to free lunches. Take the opportunity to get out on the trails free of charge and experience Wisconsin’s expansive trail system offering fun for the whole family in the great outdoors.
Enjoying Wisconsin state parks, forests, trails and recreation areas is a bargain any time of year but on the first Sunday of June they are an exceptional value, as entrance to any state properties is free as part of the State Park Open House. No admission stickers are required on vehicles and trail passes are not required for activities ranging from bicycling to horseback riding on state trails. In addition, Saturday, June 1 is National Trails Day and fees are waived to use all DNR-managed state trails as well.
The weekend of June 1-2 is also Free Fishing Weekend, which allows fishing anywhere in Wisconsin, including inland waters as well as Wisconsin’s side of the Mississippi River and Great lakes, without a trout stamp or license. Several parks are sponsoring free fishing activities, along with other special events. Feel free to reel one in!
More information about all four events can be found on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website.
Additional Affordable Fun
Several of the State Historic Sites are having a Visitor Appreciation Day on Sunday, June 2. Take this great opportunity to explore new sites or revisit your favorites. Enjoy deeply discounted admission at Pendarvis, Villa Louis, Stonefield and the Madeline Island Museum.This entry was posted in Outdoor Fun
