The South Dakota Game Fish and Parks have announced the annual free state park pass and fishing weekend May 20-22, 2011. All of the state parks and campgrounds will offer the free admittance and no fishing licenses will be required to fish in South Dakota’s waters. The free weekend is a great time to come and see the beautiful parks and clean campgrounds here in the state.
The free weekend is offered to non-residents as well as South Dakota residents.

I always use this weekend to get out camping before Memorial Day…the official kickoff of camping season. The early free weekend allows me to ready my camper, make sure the grill works and check all my gear. I also use the free weekend to put new line on my fishing poles and get ready for the summer season. There are plenty of other reasons why I camp, but this weekend in particular it’s FREE!
Hope to see you out there.
