[DNR] Open house, July 8, highlights changes at Spring Mill SP
Start Date: 7/8/2014Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 7/8/2014End Time: 8:00 PM
Entry Description
Some big changes are happening at Spring Mill State Park, and the public is invited to a July 8 open house that will explain them.

The open house runs from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Lakeview Room in the Spring Mill State Park Inn and will be hosted by Indiana State Parks & Reservoirs director Dan Bortner and park staff.

“We’re excited about all the recent and upcoming improvements at Spring Mill State Park,” Bortner said. “The open house is an opportunity for the public to learn about these changes and even experience some of them first hand.”

Visitors will learn about the Spring Mill Lake Restoration Project scheduled to begin this fall. The project involves dredging silt from the 23-acre lake. Dredging the lake will allow for better recreational access and improve the habitat for fish, turtles, otters, waterfowl and other wildlife.

The project is expected to cost $700,000 and happen in two phases over two or three years. Approximately 40,000 cubic yards of dredge material will be removed.

Park visitors will still be able to access the lake and fish, although some areas might be closed.

The lake was last dredged in 1977-78, when 14,000 cubic yards of sediment was removed.

The open house will also have information on new developments at the inn, including new management and new menu items. Open-house participants can taste-test some of those new menu items.

Spring Mill State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2968.htm) is at 3333 State Road 60 East, Mitchell, 47446.
