National Forest in Ohio waives fees for 2 days

NELSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The Wayne National Forest is offering free camping and recreation activities for two days.

Forest supervisor Anne Carey says Friday and Saturday are “fee-free” in observance of National Get Outdoors Day. The 241,000-acre forest in southeast Ohio has more than 360 miles of trails, along with campgrounds, picnic shelters and swim areas. There still will be a $9 reservation fee for those who want to reserve a site online.

Carey says in a statement from the Nelsonville, Ohio, forest service office that the free days are a great way for people to get a taste of outdoors adventure.
