State Park Entrance Licenses Available for 2019

PIERRE, S.D. – The 2019 annual park entrance license for South Dakota's state parks and recreation areas is available for purchase.

The 2019 park entrance license is valid from Oct. 1, 2018, through May 17, 2020. An annual park entrance license is $30. Purchasers of one license can also buy a second at half price. The license is required for entrance into designated state parks, recreation areas and lakeside use areas, although it does not cover camping costs or additional fees.

South Dakota state parks offer a variety of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, kayaking, disc golf, fishing, archery and bird watching.

Entrance licenses can be purchased online at campsd.com, at local state park offices or by calling 1.800.710.2267.

The 2019 annual entrance license celebrates the state park system’s 100 years of outdoor tradition. Custer State Park was designated the first state park in 1919.
