  7. Mount Spokane PASEA Land Classification

    Mount Spokane State Park is the largest park in the state park system at approximately 14,000 acres. Within the park, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission (Commission) has authorized an existing alpine ski area known as the Mount Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park that is currently operated under a concession agreement with a Spokane area non-profit known as Mount Spokane 2000 (MS 2000). The existing ski concession area encompasses 1425 acres or about 10% of the park.

  8. Saint Edward Planning - Seminary

    Washington State Parks is beginning a planning process to evaluate a potential long-term lease of the seminary building located at Saint Edward State Park. The seminary structure and associated cultural landscape were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007. During the past several months, a group of historic preservation, political, and community leaders, has been meeting with Washington State Parks, to discuss how to preserve the Saint Edward Seminary building and grounds. In response to emerging potential for partnerships, the Washington State Parks Commission adopted a resolution on November 14, 2013 authorizing the Director to “explore partnerships with other public and private sector entities for the purpose of rehabilitating the Saint Edward Seminary building.”

  9. Kopachuck Master Plan

    Kopachuck State Park is undergoing a public master planning process. The park’s campground was closed because of a disease affecting many of the parks’ mature trees, so the park is currently operated for day-use only. In 2010, the Parks and Recreation Commission approved a long-term plan for the park, but with the campground closure, it is now out of date. The Commission intends to develop a new master plan based on the land classifications adopted as part of the 2010 planning process, updating the park plan to be in alignment with the park’s current status as a day-use operation. The public can view the previous planning information online, at www.parks.wa.gov/plans/kopachuck-jarrellcove/.

  10. Larrabee State Park Planning

    Washington State Parks has begun a land-use planning project for Larrabee State Park located in Whatcom and Skagit Counties. The planning project, also known as Classification and Management Planning (CAMP), includes the four planning stages described below. The CAMP project will address protection of natural and cultural resources and management of recreation and trail activities at Larrabee and explore ways to best preserve and interpret the historic components of the park. The entire planning process includes a series of public workshops over about an eight-month period. These workshops are slated to begin in early 2014. Project staff will post information from the workshops for public review and comment at each stage of the process.

  11. Dosewallips Sewer System replacement

    The new sewage system at Dosewallips State Park will replace the aging septic system at the park with an improved treatment process that decreases negative impacts to groundwater quality.

  12. Moran Mountain Bike Trail Proposal Planning

    Washington State Parks is looking at long-term management options at Moran State Park as Orcas Power and Light Cooperative (OPALCO) transitions away from the current utility corridor. Parks has received a proposal from Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance for formal development of a trail that will follow the alignment of the power line corridor. The developed trail would use an existing trail and the power line access road.

  13. Motorized Use of Long-Distance Trails

    The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is undertaking a process to develop a policy and a procedure to determine when to approve use of motorized vehicles on agency-managed long-distance trails.

  14. Fudge Point Planning

    Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission (WSPRC) is beginning a planning process for the Fudge Point property located on Harstine Island in Mason County. The property is 136 acres in size, and could be developed for public access.
