If you plan on enjoying South Dakota's many state parks in 2016, it might be a good plan to pick up a new 2016 annual park entrance license right now then.

They went on sale October 1 and can be purchased online, at a state park office or by calling 605-773-3391. The 2016 sticker sells for $30.00 each or you can purchase two for $45.00.

The new sticker, valid through May 19, 2017, features a photo of anglers at sunset on Lake Oahe.

In South Dakota a license is required for entrance into designated state parks, recreation areas and lakeside use areas. Keep in mind, it does not cover camping costs or additional fees.
