    Who designed the park and are site plans and renderings available for public view and comment?

      I’ll get this info online. The designs are already final, though (contractors are working on basic construction even now).

    Are there trails for bicycles?

      The Pinnacles Trail and the Lost Corral Trails are open to bikes. Please be aware there is a nasty non-native/invasive called Puncture Vine. This is a very apt name and we recommend carrying extra tubes and using a product like Slime to prevent flats.

    is there going to be any RV hookup since this is going to be a new state park

      Cottonwood is limited on power down here. We will be doing a power assessment in the future and will be able to make a decision at that point. However, there are no short term for plans for full hook-up sites.
