RFP Issued For Lake Malone State Park
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Department of Parks is seeking a contractor to build and operate cottages and operate the marina at Lake Malone State Park in Muhlenburg and Logan counties.
A request for proposal has been issued for the project. Lake Malone covers 788 lake acres and the park currently has a campground, marina, picnic shelters, beach and a 1.5-mile hiking trail. The lake is enclosed by dramatic 50-foot sandstone bluffs.
“Our proposals for public-private partnerships, such as this one, are a good way to leverage scarce funding and obtain the best return on the taxpayers’ investment,” said Parks Commissioner J.T. Miller.
More information about the proposal is available at https://eprocurement.ky.gov. The deadline for submitting proposals is June 27, 2007.
The Kentucky State Park System is composed of 53 state parks plus an interstate park shared with Virginia.
