Recreation Improvements Through Partnerships


Lake: East Branch Clarion River Lake, PA

Partners: USACE; USDA Forest Service; Allegheny National Forest; US Department of Justice; Federal Bureau of Prisons; Weyerhaeuser, Inc.

Partnership Type: Cost Share Agreement

Corps POC: Gary Froelich, Resource Manager

Story: The challenge was how to provide customers with the amenities they desired without programmed funding to accomplish the tasks. East Branch Lake’s 30-year-old-plus campground was overdue for major renovation that included expansion of individual campsites to accommodate today’s customers in addition to providing electric sites where previously there were none. A Cost Share Agreement was initiated with a corporate sponsor and the U.S. Forest Service, who has a working agreement with the Federal Bureau of Prisons to provide federal prisoner labor. As a result of these partnerships, the campground now has electric sites as well as individual campsite renovations that are continuing today

East Branch Lake did not have a picnic pavilion on the project until the same partners collaborated to accomplish the construction of a pavilion with handicapped access walkway.
