South Dakota to no longer provide free state park entry and fishing on Father’s or Mother’s day

The South Dakota legislature’s interim rules review committee approved rule changes offered up by Game Fish and Parks Department. The new rule means people will no longer get free entrance at South Dakota’s state parks or free fishing on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. According to GFP Director Tom Kirschenmann, the goal in offering the free perks was to entice people to buy annual park passes and fishing licenses. The rule was first enacted in 2019 and according to data provided by GFP the enticement effort did not work.
