Free admission to all state parks, forests and trails 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 park, forest, trail and recreation property is free.
“Open House Day is an opportunity for all residents and visitors to explore some of Wisconsin’s most beautiful natural locations and enjoy a wide variety of outdoor recreation,” says Dan Schuller, Wisconsin State Parks director.
Reservable campsites in Wisconsin state park and forest campgrounds are generally in high demand for the Memorial Day weekend, but there are often campsites available for the weekend of State Park Open House at many parks and forests. Camping fees do still apply on state park open house day. People can check campsite availability or reserve a site (minimum two nights) through the State Parks Web site [www.wiparks.net].
