West Boggs Park

Davies Martin County Parks


Members: $10

Non-Members: $20


The deadline to register for this event is Thursday, May 31st.

One subject that is rarely covered in the park world is Campgrounds. So many of us have them and some of us want them. How do we make the most of campgrounds?

Learn from the professionals at West Boggs Park Campground. During this discussion we will cover topics such as pricing, risk management, programming, community involvement, and revenue. At the end of the discussion we will learn how the staff came together to raise funds for the new playground.

There will be a tour of the facility and pontoon ride of the lake.
