DNR plans Free Fun Weekend

WISCONSIN - You might save some money if you decide to go hiking or fishing next weekend. Free Fun Weekend happens statewide on June 6th and 7th. The DNR lets people fish without a license on state waters both days and state parks also waive entrance fees.

"We seem to have a lot more users that want to come in and see what the park is about, take a trip on one of the trails," said Council Ground State Park Superintendent Dawn Bishop. "We do see an increase in use for that weekend."

Tackle loan programs will be held at some DNR offices and state parks. Hiking and biking on state trails will also be free both days. State land managers use these days to encourage people to explore the land.
