“Fee-Free Day” at Wayne National Forest

In observance of National Get Outdoors Day, the Wayne National Forest will offer a fee waiver Saturday, June 14.

The fee waiver includes all off-highway vehicle, horseback, and mountain bike trails, and some developed recreation sites. These sites include Burr Oak Cove Campground, Stone Church Horse Campground, and Lake Vesuvius’ Big Bend Swim Area.

Fee waivers do not apply to recreation sites that are reservable through the National Recreation Reservation System.

One of the favorite attractions on the Forest is the over 360 miles of multiple-use trails, which include horse, all-terrain vehicle, off-highway motorcycle, mountain bike, and hiking trails. Trail permits are required to ride ATV, OHM, mountain bike, and horse trails during the open season, with exception of designated “Fee-Waiver” days.

The 241,000 acre Wayne National Forest offers a variety of recreation opportunities, including camping, picnicking, fishing, hunting, nature viewing, canoeing, and much more.
