Enjoy free fishing, ORV and state park and boating access entry during Michigan's 'Three Free' Weekend

June 12-13, residents and out-of-state visitors can fish, ride Michigan’s off-road trails or visit state parks and state-managed boating access sites – all for free. 


Free Fishing ►

Grab your fishing rod and cast a line! Twice a year, you can enjoy two days of fishing without a license. All other regulations still apply.


Free ORV ►

Ride 3,800 miles of designated routes and trails and the state's six scramble areas without purchasing an ORV license or trail permit.
