Nevada residents and visitors are invited to celebrate Nevada Public Lands Day on Sept. 30, with a fee-free day at Nevada’s State Parks.
Park fees, including entrance, camping (Saturday night), and boating, where applicable, will be waived at state parks throughout Nevada.
Nevada Public Lands Day encourages Nevadans to discover the many recreation opportunities right in their own backyards.
“Nevada’s state parks offer a great diversity of outdoor opportunities,” said State Parks Administrator Eric Johnson. “For example, visitors can explore the slot canyons of Cathedral Gorge, tour a genuine ghost town at Berlin-Ichthyosaur, or spend a relaxing afternoon fishing at Wild Horse.”
Nevada Public Lands Day is also an opportunity for visitors to take the passport challenge and add a stamp to their passport booklet. If they don’t have a passport booklet yet, they can pick one up while visiting any state park. Once visitors have their passports stamped at 15 different state parks, they earn a free annual day-use pass to all Nevada State Parks.
