Logan State Park, located on Middle Thompson Lake 45 miles west of Kalispell on Highway 2, has undergone a $400,000 facelift. The entrance road has been rerouted to provide safer roads and camping spurs have been paved. A flush toilet with shower facilities is now available, one camp site has been made handicapped accessible, and camp sites were lengthened to accommodate larger units. In addition, all the tables and fire rings were replaced."We are delighted" stated Marty Watkins, Regional Park Manager. "This facility provides an excellent balance of recreational opportunity in the Thompson Chain of Lakes area. It balances the primitive Thompson Chain of Lakes Fishing Access Site with this well developed and centrally located State Park." Revegetation work will be done this fall, including tree planting to replace trees removed during a hazard tree project at the site to provide a forested environment for the next generation.
