PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Outdoor enthusiasts rejoice: Entrance fees will be waived at all state park and recreation areas in South Dakota this weekend.

The state Game, Fish and Parks Department has scheduled its annual Open House and Free Fishing weekend for this Friday through Sunday.

Residents and non-residents will also be allowed to fish for free this weekend. The three-day event allows people to fish without a license, but fishing regulations and limits, as well as camping fees still apply.

Some parks will also offer activities Friday and Saturday, including a 5K run at the Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve in North Sioux City and a family fishing event at the Palisades State Park in Garretson.
