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 will use this grant to buy 160 acres inside Mount Spokane State Park. The land is surrounded by State Park property and contains a road, several recreation trails, and quality wildlife habitat. The land previously was logged and is the site of a 1962 plane crash. At 14,000 acres, Mount Spokane is the largest state park in Washington. It hosts a variety of winter and summer activities including hiking, cycling, horseback riding, Nordic skiing, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.
