Meeting on master plan for Wilderness Road set for Ewing park

RICHMOND, Va. — A public meeting to discuss long-range planning for Wilderness Road State Park will be held Thursday, Nov. 21, at 6 p.m. in the park’s visitor center.

Staff with the Department of Conservation and Recreation will provide an overview of the park’s revised master plan.

Each state park has a master plan that guides development. Plans are updated every five years and must be current before funds are allocated for new facilities.

The updated plan for Wilderness Road calls for construction of cabins, a campground, an enhanced group camp, a “sprayground” for children, an expanded trail system, a meeting facility and a re-created Cherokee town.

Wilderness Road State Park is located at 8051 Wilderness Road, Ewing, Va., about 9 miles from the Kentucky border.

DCR manages the Virginia State Park system.

For more information, contact Bill Conkle, DCR park planner, at bill.conkle@dcr.virginia.gov or (804) 786-5492.
