Pearrygin Lake Shoreline – Yockey Ph 3

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 purchase 119 acres on the west shoreline of Pearrygin Lake in the 584-acre Pearrygin Lake State Park in the Methow Valley. The park features expansive green lawns leading to the lake. The land would be purchased to preserve the scenic views from the park and to develop a trail system around the lake. Acquisition also will prevent development of a subdivision currently platted along the shoreline.
