BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State officials are working on details for a Missouri River nature park south of Bismarck that would open thousands of feet of shoreline to the public.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1FV4J7K ) that the North Dakota Parks and Recreation and the North Dakota Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, which controls the land, are working together on the project.

Supporters of the park say that current access points along the river are often crowded and there’s a lot of history in the area that should be preserved. That includes a transient work camp that was there during the Great Depression.

Public meetings to talk about suggestions for the project will be held later this summer.
