Virginia Parks Holding Special Events for 'National Get Outdoors Day'

High Bridge State Park

Saturday will be a good day for budget-minded families to enjoy one of Virginia's national forests.

The U.S. Forest Service is waiving fees to the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests in celebration of National Get Outdoors Day.

The waiver applies to daylong use of sites, but not overnight campgrounds, cabins or group picnic shelters.

The Forest Service offers fee-free days four times a year.

Many of Virginia's state parks are having special "Get Outdoors" events Saturday as well.
