(Helena, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) announced today that a decision notice has been issued for a proposed public dock at Wild Horse Island at Flathead Lake State Park. Based on public sentiment that a public dock would be detrimental on Wild Horse Island, Montana State Parks (MSP) will postpone this action until further analysis can be conducted.
Over the next four years, MSP will collect data regarding visitor impacts to the park, human-wildlife conflicts, trespass violations, and safety concerns. The Division will also analyze the recently completed Peer State Analysis Report which explores how neighboring state park systems address similar water-based state park units. Information gathered during this time, along with input from visitors and stakeholders will determine if a subsequent proposal will be offered for public review.
