For The City Times
The Dept. of National Resources is holding its annual Free Fun Weekend June 6-7.
Those wishing to get outdoors can enjoy Wisconsin’s outdoor activities for free during two days of no required trail passes, admission stickers or fishing licenses.
The annual Cops’n Bobbers fishing event also takes place on June 6.
People can enjoy free access to state-owned and operated trails that normally require a trail pass for those 16 or older who want to bike, in-line skate or horseback ride. Find trails by searching the Department of Natural Resources website for “find a park” and find events by searching for “Get Outdoors,” and then select the calendar search function for June 6-7.
People can fish anywhere in Wisconsin without a license or trout stamp on Free Fishing Weekend. This includes all inland waters and Wisconsin’s side of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River.
Other fishing rules apply, such as limits on the number and size of fish you can keep and any seasons when you must release certain fish species.
People who camp at state parks still need to pay for their campsites.
