New Fish Cleaning Station:This spring the Cedar Bluff State Park Bluffton Area received a top of the line Barracude I Model 6096 Fish Cleaning Station. This is to replace the old one that went down this past summer. The new cleaning station features a heavy-duty waste grinder, cutting boards, and four automatic flush nozzles. Anglers will appreciate the new system.
New Mooring Piers: During the off-season the staff uses this time to make improvements to the park which often means taking advantage of the lower water levels; many projects can only be completed at lower levels to address future needs and opportunities. This is one of the reasons Cedar Bluff Reservoir has great reservoir access at varying water levels.
Here are the new mooring piers that we installed this year, ready for action when mother nature blesses us!
Hoonii Campground: Last year the park staff developed five new full-hookup, long-term campsites. These will replace the five long-term campsites which were spread throughout the Bluffton Area's campgrounds. Each campsite has 50 amp electrical service, water and sewer, and each includes a fire ring, an evening deck and a concrete pad for the camper. When these campsites are not reserved on a long-term basis they will be available on a walk-in, first come- first serve basis. For more information or to check on availability please contact the park office. (Hoonii is from the Arapaho language, meaning long stay, it is pronounced Hawnee.) The Staff want to give a special thank you to Joby Henning for her WildTrust Donation; her donation made the development of the evening decks possible.
