WIND CAVE NATIONAL PARK, S.D. (AP) - Wind Cave National Park has completed two planning documents needed to move forward with opening of an additional 5,000 acres of park space.

National Park Service Midwest Regional Director Cam Sholly says the documents will allow the park to open the 5,556-acre Casey Addition, which is located along the park’s former southern boundary. The property was acquired in 2011.

The Zoning Management Plan defines allowable types and general intensities of uses, activities and development associated with public enjoyment and use at specified locations throughout the entire park.

The Visitor Use Plan calls for access into the new property along 266th Street and the construction of a gravel parking area near the Sanson Ranch buildings.
