Fitness Passport Challenge

The GFP Fitness Passport Challenge encourages people of all ages to get outdoors and visit South Dakota State Parks, the state fish hatcheries and The Outdoor Campuses. To get started you can pick up a passport book at any state park or GFP office or request a copy.

Visitors to state parks, recreation areasfish hatcheries and The Outdoor Campuses can have their passport book stamped in an effort to receive incentives. Once a visitor has a set number of stamps, he/she can take the book into any park or GFP office to receive incentives. Prizes will be given for visiting 10, 25, 45 and 65 + areas

Each area has a stamp that can be found in a lock box, so visitors can stamp their books even when staff is not present. The combination to unlock the box is listed on the page that describes the area. Lock boxes are located near the self registration stations at state park entrances and on welcome signs at non-fee areas.

Prize levels are reached when you have 10, 25, 45 and 65 stamps in your passport book. When you've reached one of the levels, take the Passport Prize Form and your book to a Game, Fish and Parks office or a state park for verification. Ask a staff member to verify the levels you've reached and sign your form. Send the completed Passport Prize Form to:
 
GFP - Division of Parks and Recreation

523 East Capitol Avenue
Pierre, SD 57501
Your prize will be mailed to you upon receipt of the form. Prizes can only be redeemed once per level per person.
