Beginning in the fall of 2010, a group of
year-round Stagecoach and Oak Creek residents came together to create Friends
Stagecoach State Park. Friends is a nonprofit group formed to help enhance the
Park's recreational resources, support educational and interpretive activities,
sponsor park improvement projects, and to connect people to the outdoors.
last several months, the Friends group has been working closely with Park staff
to identify potential projects to benefit the park and its users.
projects include the following:
Expanding hours at the South Shore boat ramp
- Expanding cross country ski trails
- Adding skate ski trails
Families or individuals may become
members for just $20 per year. Membership lists are private. Meetings are open
to all members. Checks should be made out to Friends of Stagecoach and can be
mailed to the address above. Please include a mailing address as well as an
email address so members can be kept up to date with progress and activities at
the park. For an informational, please view the Friends of Stagecoach State Park brochure.

Friends is seeking a band to play one or more concerts at the Stagecoach
Pavilion. If you have a band, and would like to support Friends, please contact
