This Saturday, June 12 is another FREE entrance day to all Minnesota State Parks! It’s a wonderful opportunity to get outside and walk, hike, bike, and just enjoy the beauty of nature. Maybe it’s time to check out a new one?
All 75 Minnesota state parks and state recreation areas will offer free admission. What that means is that NO vehicle permit will be required (normally $7/day or $35/year).
Do you have a favorite park or maybe a couple of favorites? We regularly take trips to Interstate on the river as well as Mille Lacs Kathio, and my husband and I ventured to several state parks when we were first married. And then of course there’s Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock Lighthouse…it’s so hard to pick a favorite!
Additional information and some future free days to put on your calendar:
On four days in 2021, all 75 Minnesota state parks and state recreation areas will offer free admission to everyone. Mark your calendar for these fee-free dates:
- Saturday, February 13
- Saturday, April 24
- Saturday, June 12
- Friday, November 26
Minnesota state parks are open year-round, and there’s a state park within 30 miles of most Minnesotans. With a free day in each season, it’s a great opportunity to get out there and explore someplace new – or visit an old favorite at a new time of year! Whether you stay for the whole weekend or just spend a few hours outside, you’ll make memories that will last a lifetime.
The entrance fee waiver for fee-free days does not cover amenity or user fees for activities like camping, rentals, or special tours.
