The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is allowing residents and visitors to experience wilderness for free this weekend. This first weekend in June is Free Fun Weekend where people can get free entry to state parks, free fishing on any of Wisconsin’s lakes and rivers, and free ATV/UTV riding on public trails. All rules and regulations still do apply. Wisconsin Conservation Warden Jordan Resop offers safety tips to those on the water this weekend.
As part of the Free Fun Weekend, Peninsula State Park is hosting programs to educate people on the fish of Wisconsin. Saturday and Sunday, the 600 gallon DNR Fish Tank with smallmouth bass and bullheads will be at the White Cedar Nature Center, along with educators and activities related to fishing.
