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.
This project will purchase commercial forest land within the proposed boundary of the Nisqually Mashel State Park. The property includes both uplands and Riparian Protection lands north of the Nisqually River, near the confluence with Ohop Creek. Expanded opportunities resulting from this acquisition may include trails, walk-in camping areas, and general habitat preservation.
