Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Region One, has completed an environmental assessment (EA) for a revised project proposal at West Shore State Park in Lake County for the purpose of installing 11 campsite electrical pedestals within campground Loop B. In addition, the proposed project would include electrical infrastructure improvements.
Following a 30-day public review, 23 comments were submitted, including 12 in support and 8 in opposition. Based on the analysis in the EA and comments received, Alternative B, installation of electrical pedestals at 11 sites in Loop B, was found to be the preferred alternative.

Attached is the Decision Notice for the Point of Rocks Fishing Access Site (FAS) Initial Development Project Environmental Assessment (EA). Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) proposes to develop a new river access on the upstream parcel of the Point of Rocks Fishing Access Site (FAS) to replace a substandard pioneered ramp downstream that is causing erosion. Development includes new highway signs, a concrete boat ramp, vault latrine, parking for 12 vehicles, and an overflow parking area for approximately another 12 - 15 vehicles. The existing highway approach will be improved as well.
Based on the EA, public comment, and the need for a suitable boat ramp at Point of Rocks Fishing Access Site, it is my decision to proceed with the development project. Both the Decision Notice and the Environmental Assessment are available for review from FWP at the address above or online on FWP’s Internet website: http://www.fwp.mt.gov/publicnotices.
