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 agreement purchased 80 acres at the confluence of the Mashel and Nisqually Rivers just north of La Grande, near Eatonville. Historically used for overnight camping, the site offers excellent views of Mt. Rainier and will become a major state park.
