Those who are uninterested in Black Friday deals and want to spend their holiday weekend outdoors can do so for free the day after Thanksgiving. 

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is offering free admission to all 75 state parks

Along with the free entry, a number of parks will be offering special programing, including Whitewater State Park, Gooseberry Falls State Park, Lake Bemidji State Park and Interstate State Park. 

"If you've never been to a state park before, this is a great way to extend your holiday a day further and get outdoors with family or friends to explore the natural beauty of our state parks," Erika Rivers, director of the DNR's Parks and Trails Division, said in a statement. 

The DNR hopes by offering free entry to the parks that visitors will be encouraged to return.
