State Representative Ryan Smith (R-Bidwell) has announced that the State Controlling Board approved the release of $812,152 to help fund upgrades to Lake Alma State Park in Vinton County.

“These funds will provide vital enhancements to Lake Alma State Park that will benefit campers and visitors for years to come,” Smith said.

Among the upgrades to the park is the construction of a new 520 square-foot concrete restroom and shower facility, the installation of a new 1,050 linear-foot sewer line and a new 3,960 linear-foot water line, the implementation of two new submersible grinder pump stations, as well as the construction of an RV dump station with access to road and electrical services.

When completed, the project will provide water and sanitary services from the Village of Hamden, allowing for further improvements at the park in the future.

The project is expected to be completed by April of next year.
