Activities » Completed Projects » Habitat Improvements » McGraw Park River Project

In 2011 the Park County Land & Water Trust Fund Board provided funding to improve stream habitat along several hundred feet of the North Fork of the South Platte River at McGraw Park in Bailey. This project employed a variety of techniques and structures to increase the river’s trout holding capacity at both high and low flows. 

Owned by the Park County Historical Society, there is no charge to fish at McGraw Park.  An old railroad bridge provides access across the river and a new fishing deck has been constructed next to one of several enhanced pools.
