Minnesota State Forest Recreation Area Campground Services
Provide an increase in the maintenance and operation of a system of Forest Recreation Areas across the State. The additional funding will be spread to the highest use facilities to provide better customer service and experiences.
The Division manages 46 Forest Recreation Areas across the State. This program allocates additional resources to 20 of the higher use facilities in the system to optimize visitor services and customer satisfaction. This approach will not result in specific projects for reporting.
The Division expects to enhance operations by providing increased staffing hours at 20 locations during the peak operating seasons.
