TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Just in time to start thinking about getting outdoors again, Kansas is offering free admission and special activities at all 21 state parks on Saturday.

The Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says the open houses will include camping at offseason prices and the opportunity to reserve cabins and campsites for the season ahead.

Hours and activities on Saturday will vary from park to park.

At Cedar Bluff, there's a free hot dog feed starting at 11:30 a.m., while courtesy boat inspections will be offered at Crawford, Milford and Tuttle Creek.

Elk City will have a one-mile nature hike and a fishing derby for kids. And several parks will have presentations or instruction on archery, fishing and other sports.

Information about Kansas state parks is available on the department's website.
