Park master plans help determine how to best identify uses for a specific site, make the most of limited resources, and protect the environment. Because public input is vital to the process, State Parks is seeking comments from all stakeholders including the general public, local government officials, friends groups, user groups and other interested parties.

State Parks' staff will make a brief presentation about the master planning process and the park. They will also be available to answer questions and receive public comments. An information packet is available on-line at:

All persons interested in the parks are urged to attend; those who cannot may submit written comments by October 23, 2009 to:
