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.
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will use this grant to acquire the 110-acre Bear Creek Lodge property, which includes 13 campsites, a group camp, and tubing hill. The lodge building will be acquired with separate funding. The primary recreation opportunities provided by this project are camping and winter recreation.
