Lake Sylvia State Park Pavilion

Category Overview

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.

Project Highlights

State Parks, working in cooperation with the Friends of Lake Sylvia and Schafer State Park, will use this grant to build a 3,000-square-foot pavilion for recreational use at Lake Sylvia State Park in Montesano, in Grays Harbor County. The pavilion will create a new destination at Lake Sylvia that will protect groups from inclement weather and promote year-round use of the park for school groups, weddings, the Lake Sylvia Fall Festival, and other large events from around western Washington. State Parks also will install a walkway, parking, and restrooms. State Parks will contribute $200,000 in donations of cash.
