Howard Marsh Metropark
Shawnee State Park–Marina
The golf course at Shawnee State Park has been closed. The property is to remain in the state park but no longer maintained as a golf course. We have changed the name of this hotspot accordingly.
Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area–Drained Reservoir
The Killdeer Reservoir has been drained and decommissioned. The dike that impounded the water had become unsafe and has been breached to drain the reservoir. The hotspot has been renamed accordingly.
