Beverly Dunes ORV Park Renovation

Category Overview

The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.

Project Highlights

The Department of Natural Resources will use this grant to renovate the off-road vehicle (ORV) trailhead and campsites at the Beverly Dunes ORV Park, in Grant County near the town of Beverly. The department will install a new entrance sign, two kiosks, and three restrooms, and renovated 15 parking spaces and campsites. The renovations will improve parking, sanitation, camping opportunities, and access for people with disabilities, and provide safer access for trucks and trailers hauling off-road vehicles to the trails and sand dunes. The Department of Natural Resources will contribute $51,200 in cash, staff labor, and donations of labor.
