Information from Iowa DNR

ELDORA – Several structures at Pine Lake State Park, including shelters, cabins and shower buildings, will undergo renovations this summer starting in June.

According to Andy Place, DNR park ranger at Pine Lake State Park, the renovations will improve visitor experience and modernize facilities. “The local community and park visitors will really enjoy the updated facilities at the park,” said Place.

Scheduled improvements include: a new shelter and vault toilet at Circle Point; new HVAC, plumbing and ADA-accessible features at the stone cabins; new shower and restrooms at the campgrounds; and regrading and removal of old building foundations at the Upper Pine Lake boat ramp.

Due to the nature of the renovations, park visitors can expect periodic closures of the Upper Pine Lake boat ramp and the bike trail while construction is taking place. Additionally, the Circle Point picnic area will close beginning June 21, the campground will close Monday July 27, and the cabins will close beginning Friday, July 31. These three areas will remain closed for the rest of the summer season.

“This is a major project and we hope visitors will be patient and understanding,” said Place. “Once completed, the improvements will provide much-needed amenities to Pine Lake for many years to come.”

    How about fixing the back trail with the rotting timbers and gravel that’s 4 inches below the top of timbers, it’s a beautiful section of trail but has become dangerous. Also several sections of paved trail are always wet and slippery maybe some culvert to keep low spots dry.
