(Helena, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) is seeking public comment on proposed improvements at Tongue River Reservoir State Park, six miles north of Decker.

The proposal includes renovations at Camper’s Point North and South that would upgrade some camping facilities and storage areas; add a second slip dock, and increase dry dock storage.

Proposed plans for Pee Wee Point include new gravel for campsites and the boat ramp parking area.

A park-wide signage program is also proposed at Tongue River Reservoir State Park, with a uniform format expected to result in a decrease in the number of signs needed.

Tongue River Reservoir State park is popular for boating, fishing, swimming, camping, picnicking, bicycling and wildlife viewing. In 2011, more than 50,000 people visited the 642-acre Tongue River Reservoir State Park.

Public written comments will be accepted until Friday, Sept. 14 at 5 p.m. Please send written comments to: Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, Attn: John Little, P.O. Box 1630, Miles City, MT 59301, or email: jlittle@mt.gov .

The environmental assessments detailing the proposed work may be viewed on the FWP website at fwp.mt.gov. Go on the ‘submit public comments’ tab and click Public Notices, Environmental Assessments, then Developments, Improvements & Enhancements, or call 406-234-0923.
