Shumaker Grade and Snyder Bar Access Improvements

Category Overview

The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.

Project Highlights

The Department of Fish and Wildlife will use this grant to renovate two water access sites in the Chief Joseph Wildlife Area along the Grande Ronde River in Asotin County. Work will be done in the Snyder Bar and Shumaker Grade Access sites. The department will install toilets, formalize primitive campsites, improve hand-launch sites, renovate parking areas, and improve trail surfacing. The sites are used for rafting, kayaking, fishing, hunting, camping, sightseeing, and wildlife viewing.
