Sun Lakes – McLeary Acquisition 2

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 acquire the McLeary tract adjacent to Sun Lakes/Dry Falls State Park. The 200 acre parcel is an outstanding example of the nationally significant Grand Coulee Landscape, associated with the Ice Age Floods.
