DNR Question of the Week

The DNR communications team works with agency experts to develop the weekly questions and provide the answers. This feature addresses current DNR issues, interesting topics, or the most frequently asked questions from around Minnesota.


Q: Our school is planning a field trip to a Minnesota state park. Will we need to pay entry fees?

A: Minnesota state parks will issue a free daily vehicle permit for any vehicle transporting K-12 students, chaperones, teachers and coaches for school-sanctioned activities. This applies to day trips, not overnight camping. Please have your drivers identify themselves at the park entrance, and enjoy your visit.
