PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — It’s a sure sign that summer’s getting close — free admission to South Dakota parks and fishing areas.

The Department of Game, Fish and Parks says its annual open house is next weekend, May 17-19.

Anglers can fish without a license anywhere in the state, and entrance fees are waived for all visitors to South Dakota’s state parks and recreation areas. But camping fees and fishing regulations and limits still apply.
