The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is offering free admission to all 75 state parks

Along with the free entry, a number of parks will be offering special programing, including Whitewater State Park, Gooseberry Falls State Park, Lake Bemidji State Park and Interstate State Park. 

"If you've never been to a state park before, this is a great way to extend your holiday a day further and get outdoors with family or friends to explore the natural beauty of our state parks," Erika Rivers, director of the DNR's Parks and Trails Division, said in a statement. 

The DNR hopes by offering free entry to the parks that visitors will be encouraged to return.
