Throughout the next three years, fishermen and campers may have a new place to enjoy nature in Plymouth County, Iowa.

County Conservation Director Nick Beeck told county supervisors Tuesday (Dec 17) that, with their financial support, the conservation board hopes to construct a campground, restroom and shelter house in the River’s Bend Wildlife Area, the LeMars Daily Sentinel reported.

The plan proposes these projects as well as a fishing lake and boat ramp, which are nearly complete. The park is located south of Akron.

The conservation board requested $85,000 from the supervisors to complete the project throughout the next three fiscal years.

Some of the costs include:

* $8,000 for a boat ramp.

* $14,000 for a shelter house.

* $37,000 for a 12-site campground.

* $4,475 for seeding.

The project’s total cost depends on whether the board of supervisors pays for the campground, as well as a single or double restroom, according to the project budget.

A single restroom is about $12,000 cheaper than a double.
