ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - Saturday's a good day for budget-minded families to head to a national forest in Virginia.

The U.S. Forest Service is waiving fees to the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests that day 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. The next freebie is Sept. 28, National Public Lands Day.

Locations of all recreation areas on the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests can be found on the forest website at http://www.fs.usda.gov/gwj/.
