Thrifty Thursday: FREE Admission to MN State Parks on SATURDAY!
This Saturday is FREE ADMISSION to all MN State Parks for National Get Outdoors Day. Normally you would have to pay a $5 vehicle admission fee. So, go check out what they are all about. GO FISHING! Did you know everyone can fish for free in MN State Parks, which means you won't have to pay for a fishing license. And what's more is those State Parks with a Fishing Pier (like Sakatah Park which is nearby me) has fishing kits to loan out for families that have poles and tackle for you to use. FYI - Sakatah Park is also celebrating their 50th Anniversary on Saturday and will be giving out cake & ice cream from 1-3pm.
Just go to the State Parks website and check out where your nearest one is and check on events on the parks page, there may be other things going on at the park you are going to go to.
In addition to the fishing kits, many state parks have free loaner kits for GPS, birding, and Kids' Discovery!
