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 will use this grant to acquire a 37-acre parcel adjacent to Flaming Geyser State Park and within the long-term boundary of the Green River Gorge Conservation Area. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is state park use, including non-motorized trail use and park administration. A well on the property may also be used to provide much-needed water for the park.
