PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The Game, Fish and Parks Commission has approved fee increases for boat licenses, passes for the George S. Mickelson Trail and vehicle passes for Custer State Park.

The commission says the hikes are meant to help keep the South Dakota state park system operating successfully.

A legislative panel must also approve the changes.

The increases include a $1 hike to $4 for daily passes for the George S. Mickelson Trail; a $5 increase to $20 for a 7-day vehicle pass for Custer State Park; and a range of boat license fee hikes ranging from $2.50 to $5, depending on the vehicle.

The commission also boosted fees for nonresident campers who make reservations by telephone to $9.90. Residents will now have to pay $2 for the previously free service.
