How to get into state parks for free this year

Even if you are busy this weekend, you still have an opportunity to keep your wallet in your pocket when heading to one of Door County’s five state parks. This Saturday and Sunday, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is offering free park admission to its 50 state parks, 15 state forests, and 44 state trails. You will also be able to fish in the state’s waterways without having to purchase a license. If your plans keep you away from a state park this weekend or you want to go to another one at a different time, your library card can help. The Algoma and Kewaunee public libraries have daily state park passes available to check out. Families are allowed to check out one pass per month and must pick a specific date to attend.




The Door County Libraries will raffle off state park day passes as a part of its summer reading program. The free passes are available through August 26th.



According to the DNR, Wisconsin’s state parks, forests, and trails draw more than 20 million visitors each year.
