State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.
State Parks used this grant to construct a picnic shelter in the Doetsch Day Use Area at Beacon Rock State Park. The shelter will provide picnic facilities for general park use and for outdoor gatherings such as weddings, family reunions and community events. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is picnicking.
