“Parks are a Fourth of July destination,” said state park director Katie Ceroll. “For many guests, the trip is a family tradition. High use of the campgrounds, beaches and day-use areas over the holiday is a given.”

Discharging fireworks is prohibited on all lands owned or leased by GFP. The ban includes state parks, recreation areas, lakeside use areas, game production areas and nature areas. Discharging fireworks is also illegal within the boundaries of the Black Hills Forest Fire Protection District, national forests and national parks in South Dakota.
