Free admission into Wisconsin state parks over the weekend

Local News

(WFRV) — This weekend was a chance for residents to explore some Wisconsin state parks with no restrictions.

Outdoor enthusiasts were offered free admission into state parks over the weekend on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2.

There were no trail passes required and community members were able to fish without fishing licenses or state trout stamps.

Appleton resident John Pha talked about his prize catches at High Cliff State Park near Sherwood after a day of fishing with his son.

“I caught two smallmouth bass, nice size, probably three or four pounds,” Pha said.  “My little munchkin right here, he caught a northern pike, a walleye, and another bass that was a pretty good size.”

Along with free fishing, non-resident, all-terrain vehicle operators did not need a non-resident trail pass to ride state ATV trails.
