9 Places That Are Offering Free Entrances To Their State Parks On Black Friday

Many of Americans have shopping on their mind when it comes to Black Friday, but some of us are simply itching to get outdoors during this holiday season. Avoid the crowds that you’ll find at the mall and instead head to a state park where you can stretch your legs after eating all of that amazing Thanksgiving food! A few years back, REI started their own #OptOutside campaign that’s encouraging people to get outside on Black Friday instead of staying indoors all day. Lucky for us, states all around America have joined in on the #OptOutside campaign by allowing free entrances to their state parks on Friday.

Wondering where you’ll be able to visit without having to reach for your wallet? Check out the states below that won’t be charging any fees to their state parks on Black Friday.
