Free Admission And Fishing At Indiana State Parks on May 1st
Saturday, April 30, 2022

In an effort to encourage outdoor activity the Indians Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is offering Hoosiers the opportunity to enjoy the state’s many state parks free of charge for one day only.

To celebrate the start of Visit Indiana Week on Sunday, the DNR is waiving admission fees at all state parks, state recreation areas, reservoirs, and state forests for each vehicle that enters allowing you and your family the ability to take a hike, play on the playground, enjoy a nice picnic lunch, or any combination of the three absolutely free.

Additionally, the Department is also waiving allowing anyone and everyone to fish in public bodies of water without needing a fishing license or "trout/salmon stamp." However, all size and bag limits will apply if you plan on keeping anything you catch.

You can find a complete list of public fishing locations on the DNR website.
