Silver Lake Fishing Dock

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 build a fishing dock at Silver Lake, a popular year-round site near Medical Lake for fishing, boating, swimming, and wildlife watching. The department’s access site has two boat ramps and two restrooms but no access for shore anglers. Anglers must fish from the shoreline next to the boat ramps, causing conflicts between users. Work also will include building a viewing platform.
