Beginning in the fall of 2010, a group of year-round Stagecoach and Oak Creek residents came together to create Friends Stagecoach State Park. Friends is a nonprofit group formed to help enhance the Park's recreational resources, support educational and interpretive activities, sponsor park improvement projects, and to connect people to the outdoors.
Over the last several months, the Friends group has been working closely with Park staff to identify potential projects to benefit the park and its users. Potential projects include the following:
- Expanding hours at the South Shore boat ramp
- Expanding cross country ski trails
- Adding skate ski trails
- Fireworks show over the reservoir in July 2012
Families or individuals may become members for just $20 per year. Membership lists are private. Meetings are open to all members. Checks should be made out to Friends of Stagecoach and can be mailed to the address above. Please include a mailing address as well as an email address so members can be kept up to date with progress and activities at the park.
