in which they are situated are listed in this section and shall be named as indicated in this section.
The lands described in the session laws establishing or changing the boundaries of each state
park are included in the state parks so established or changed. The commissioner of natural
resources is authorized to acquire by gift or purchase the lands as described. Any land which now
is or hereafter becomes tax-forfeited land and is located within the described park boundaries
is hereby withdrawn from sale and is transferred from the custody, control, and supervision of
the county board of the county to the commissioner of natural resources, free from any trust in
favor of the interested taxing districts. The commissioner shall execute a certificate of acceptance
of the lands on behalf of the state for such purposes and transmit the same to the county auditor
of the county for record as provided by law in the case of tax-forfeited land transferred to the
commissioner by resolution of the county board for conservation purposes. Any lands within the
described boundaries which may be owned by the United States and managed by any of its agents
may be acquired by land exchange, direct transfer, or purchase as federal laws may prescribe.
The lands acquired pursuant to any session laws establishing or changing the boundaries of a
state park shall be administered in the manner provided for state parks and shall be perpetually
dedicated for such use.
