Plans to build a new park office, welcome center, campgrounds and an overnight educational building for York River State Park will be discussed at a public meeting tonight.

The meeting will be held by the Virginia Department of Conservation & Recreation, which operates the 2,531-acre state park located along the York River in James City County.

DCR wants input from the public on the plans, which are part of the new draft master plan for the park. Each state park has a master plan to guide its development. Those plans are updated every 10 years.

“Master plans outline the desired future condition for a park when it is fully developed,” DCR Park Planner Bill Conkle said in a news release. “We welcome public input in the planning process.”

During the meeting, DCR staff will provide an update on the park’s master plan and go over plans for new amenities.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. today at the James City County Library, located at 7770 Croaker Road.
