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.
State Parks will use this grant to buy 120 acres to expand Pearrygin Lake State Park. The 584-acre camping park in the Methow Valley features expansive green lawns leading to 1.4 miles of waterfront on Pearrygin Lake. State Parks has been acquiring land during the past few years to expand its waterfront holdings and opportunities for trails.
