National Kids to Parks Day is May 17th.

The South Dakota State Parks join in encouraging families across the country to explore their neighborhood parks and discover the history, nature and adventure right around the corner, just across town, or a State Park down the highway this weekend.

As part of our Open House Weekend, no entrance fees are charged in South Dakota State Parks that day.

In addition, a number of parks will be hosting special events to kick off the camping season. Camping fees still apply. This weekend is also Free Fishing Weekend, and no fishing licenses are required. Regulations and limits still apply.

Make your camping reservations today for a beautiful family weekend in any of the South Dakota state parks.

For summer fun and travel, here's the South Dakota fishing trip guide and planner. Happy angling!
