    Maine Gov. Paul LePage is waiving state park fees for residents as a show of appreciation.

    His office said that day use fees will be waived for residents at Maine State Parks and Historic Sites from Saturday through Labor Day.

    LePage said it's a way of saying thank you to the public after record-breaking attendance levels beginning in 2010. He said in a statement to "please take this opportunity to visit a Maine State Park or Historic Site and make some memories with family and friends."

    There are a few exceptions, including Scarborough Beach State Park, Fort Knox, and Baxter State Park. Federal sites are also exempt. The waiver doesn't apply to camping fees.
