Union Grove State Park receives grant for cabin

According to the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier, Union Grove State Park has received a $15,000 grant from the Black Hawk County Gaming Association. The park includes a 110-acre lake and wooded land. Recreation opportunities include a beach, fishing, hiking trails, picnic areas, camping and a year-round cabin for rent.

The campground has been renovated with full hook-ups; it now has water, electricity and sewer connections at the camp sites. There is also a new shower building. The grant will be used for a second cabin at the park. The cabin will be a year-round structure with heat and air conditioning, a covered patio and porch. It sleeps four and has a fully furnished kitchen, restroom and dining area.

Additional funding is from local donations and matching dollars from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. Construction is planned to begin this fall, with completion in 2014.
