Overview of Kershaw Ryan State Park in eastern Nevada.
Nevadans and visitors are invited to celebrate Nevada Public Lands Day with “fee free” entrance to all of Nevada’s state parks.
Fees for activities including entrance, camping and boating will be waived Saturday, Sept. 25.
The idea is to encourage Nevadans to discover the recreation opportunities in their own park system, said parks administrator Bob Mergell.
“Nevada’s state parks offer an exciting lineup of outdoor opportunities,” he said.
Several of those parks are offering special events in honor of Public Lands Day. That includes an introduction to archery at Walker River park beginning at 8:30 a.m. All equipment will be provided at the park and those interested should meet at the park visitor’s center.
In addition, Washoe Lake park is offering a guided hike along the north loop equestrian trail. It is a 3.5-mile loop starting at the north boat ramp parking lot. Park officials describe it as an easy hike. Those interested should meet at 10 a.m. at the north boat ramp parking lot.
