Pearrygin Lake Shoreline Acquisition

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

Pearrygin Lake State Park is a 584-acre camping park in the Methow Valley in north central Washington. The park features expansive green lawns leading to 7,500 feet of waterfront on Pearrygin Lake. The lake offers swimming, fishing and boating. This project will acquire approximately 80 acres of land, including about 1,500 feet of waterfront on the southwest shoreline of Pearrygin Lake. State Parks will acquire another 61 acres with 1,500 feet of adjacent waterfront in early 2006, using their Parkland Acquisition Account. All told, these lands will preserve the scenic viewshed and allow for development of a trail around Pearrygin Lake.
