(Lewistown, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) is moving forward with the installation of eight new campsites to the existing campground at Ackley Lake State Park. The project will also include the installation of fire rings and picnic tables for each site.
The additional sites will provide increased opportunity for overnight camping at the park. During the peak season, the campground frequently exceeds capacity forcing visitors into overflow camping without fire rings or picnic tables.
The project is a collaboration between Montana State Parks and the Ackley Lake Club, which is providing financial and volunteer support. The addition of 8 new campsites will increase visitor satisfaction as well as revenue potential for the park.
The project was open for a 30-day public comment period from July 19, 2019 through August 19, 2019. Two comments were received from the public; both in support of the project.
