BURBANK, Wash. – The US Army Corps of Engineers will be closing the Fishhook Park day use and campground areas for the 2020 summer recreation season. This closure is needed for modifications to the park facilities.
The proposed work activities may include modifications to the existing sprinkler system, renovations to the outdated restrooms and work to accommodate larger recreational vehicles. These measures are expected to reduce maintenance costs. The park will remain closed to all vehicle, boat and pedestrian traffic to facilitate a safe working area for staff and to protect the public while these needed changes are made throughout the year.
“These improvements should benefit Fishhook Park in sustainable ways that will help maintain this park to the high standards that people are accustomed to,” Greg Watson, the assistant natural resource manager, said. “Also keep in mind that both Charbonneau Park and Hood Park will be open and are good alternatives for all your summertime fun along the Lower Snake River.”
