Featured Project

Wilderness State Park Lakeshore Campground Redevelopment

The Department of Natural Resources project to redevelop the Wilderness State Park Lakeshore Campgrounds has been awarded the Statewide Planning Excellence Award for Public Outreach by the Michigan Chapter of the American Planning Association. This project team engaged park users through a Facebook page and online surveys, and incorporated concerns and ideas from the public into the completed design and construction. Joel Gordon and Tom Pawlowski from the Design and Construction Division provided leadership and representation for the Department of Natural Resources for this project. A presentation of the analysis, public outreach, and design is available at the DNR's site.
