South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks Website

State Park entrance licenses and camping fees will increase starting Wednesday.

Game Fish and Parks officials say that could mean $3 million in revenue for the department.

Game Fish and Parks hope the increase will cover $8 million in flood damages. Infrastructure damage from flooding and high water events.

It’s the first park entrance fee increase since 2014. GF&P says the changes are in line with the rate of inflation and park fees for surrounding states.

Annual licenses to state parks will increase to $36, and daily fees to $8.
