Free Fun Weekend June 2 & 3

Free Fun Weekend in Wisconsin is Saturday June 2 and Sunday June 3. During this weekend residents and visitors can fish, hike and bike trails, gain admission to state parks and forests, and use public ATV trails all for free! Additionally, more than 50 of the state parks will have free fishing equipment available for loan & some parks are offering extra events.

Offerings for the weekend include:

  • No fishing license is needed to fish any waters. This includes inland trout and Great Lakes trout and salmon fishing, which normally would require a trout stamp in addition to a license. Fishing rules such as limits on the size and species of fish that can be kept do apply, however.
  • All state trail pass fees on all DNR-owned state trails are waived and cooperatively-run state trails also may waive fees.
  • All state park vehicle admission sticker fees on all DNR-owned properties are waived.
  • ATV registration and trail pass fees are waived.
  • Free fishing equipment is available for loan at more than 50 state parks, DNR offices, and partner organizations, and free fishing clinics are scheduled at many state parks and popular waters
  • The Friends of the Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest are holding Discovery Day on Saturday with geocaching, archery, t-shirt painting, a wildlife show, kayak demos, telescope viewing, fishing and hiking
  • The Friends of Willow River and Kinnickinnic State Parks are holding Art Along the Willow on Sunday at Willow River State Park with more than 40 art and craft vendors, kids activities and concessions
