Redwood County’s Plum Creek County Park was included in the list of funding recommendations to the Minnesota Legislature for 2019. The project selected is a $30,000 improvement to the park’s electrical system in the campground; a total of 16 RV sites will be upgraded from 30 amp to 50 amp service. All 16 sites are available for nightly reservations to the general public. This straight-forward upgrade will be a welcome improvement and will better accommodate the growing needs of RV campers.
This project is a compliment to the Legacy funding received in 2018, when the park was funded for $317,000 worth of projects. This included additional primitive camp sites, six camper cabins, new bathrooms, additional trails and a self-rental kayak station. Implementation of both grants will hopefully be completed in the fall of 2019.
The county is also nearing completion of the new park website, which will include an online reservation and payment system. This upgrade to our reservation system will make reserving sites and collecting payment easier for both the county and the campers. The website should be up and running by the middle of March.
