Construction update

We’re making progress on the main entrance road (it will pass beneath Highway 206, re-using an existing road). It needs to be widened and improved a bit to handle the kinds of vehicles park visitors typically drive.

We’re working toward a Fall 2013 opening. When the park debuts, it will feature trails and a picnic area. More details on that in a bit. The JS Burres parking area and raft take-out is on the opposite side of the river from the main park entrance and will remain open as we work on the park.

Here are a couple of recent photos showing the road work, barn roofing and fresh native vegetation we’re planting to improve the riverside areas.

  1. My husband and I drove by early last fall. Constriction was evident, the one thing that really concerned us was the steep grade down to the camp ground. With the high temps in the summer, we could see that large rigs, and those hauling horses, could very easily over heat getting out, and getting in could be hard on brakes. I would suggest that ANYONE thinking of camping there, check it out first. Just saying.

  2. I actually have a question if that will be ok….This new park is a Day Use only?I am assuming that there won’t be any electric hookups?
