A New State Park!!!

Rocking River State Park

With his signature last week on the State of Arizona’s fiscal year 2017-2018 budget, Gov. Doug Ducey directed $4 million to help develop Camp Verde’s Rockin’ River Ranch as the next Arizona State Park.

From 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. June 1 in the cafeteria at Camp Verde Middle School, Arizona State Parks and Trails will host an open house to solicit public feedback on the development of the approximately 209-acre park.

According to Sue Black, executive director for Arizona State Parks and Trails, it’s important that the public is “involved on the front end” of the project.

“When you look at the view of the green, I want to keep that same essence of the park and that it stays with the design,” Black said. “These aren’t my state parks. They are our state parks.”
