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 buy 50 acres next to the undeveloped Haley property and develop a trailhead and a trail to the beach. The Haley property was acquired in the late 1970s and early 1980s, but has not yet been developed for public access. This project will provide the first developed facilities in the park.
