SALT LAKE CITY — Utah State Parks, in cooperation with the Bureau of Reclamation, has completed a draft Environmental Assessment to determine the environmental impacts of potential upgrades to six Utah state parks.
This study is examining the potential of reestablishing recreation facilities at Lost Creek Reservoir and developing and rehabilitating recreation facilities at five other state parks: Deer Creek, Jordanelle, Red Fleet, Rockport, and Willard Bay.
If approved, this study would allow the state parks to construct, operate and maintain the proposed improvements and upgrades. Current suggestions for improvements include but are not limited to campground expansion and improvements, trail development, entrance station improvements, construction of new day-use areas, boat ramp improvements, and new administrative facilities.
Join the study team on Thursday, Nov. 18, from 6 to 7 p.m. for an online Public Meeting to learn about the proposed improvements and engage in a live question and answer session.
