CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - With Veterans Day this week, Wyoming State Parks wants to help celebrate the freedom veterans give by giving them a freebie.

“We appreciate our Veterans, and this is just a small way for us, to as a department, to say thank you and to give something back to them, " said Gary Schoene, Public Information Officer, Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources.

Wyoming State Parks is holding its “Parks for Patriots” program on November 11th.

On Veterans day, Wyoming State Parks are waiving their day-use fees in all state parks and state historical sites for all Veterans.

Veterans are free to hike, bike and fish at state parks on this day; this also includes historical sites for some lessons in Wyoming history.

“We think it could be fairly busy, not anywhere near capacity, but I think we’ll still have quite a few people out, ” said Schoene.

State parks include Edness Wilkins park by Casper, Curt Gowdy park by Cheyenne.

Historical parks include the Territorial Prison in Laramie and Camp Douglas, a POW camp by Douglas.
