MARBLE ROCK, Iowa - Friends of Floyd County Conservation are working to raise money for a new cabin at Tosanak Recreation Area near Marble Rock.
The park was established four years ago after formerly serving as the Winnebago Scout Camp, and while it came with some existing cabins and facilities on the property, it is growing, including RV sites and an indoor recreation area. County Conservation Director Adam Sears has been proud of how the park has been developing.
"We have a new recreation area with some basketball, volleyball, bags, ping pong and foosball. There's two miles of riverfront, hiking ... there's just a lot to do," he said.
The new cabin will be 1,100 sq. ft., and will consist of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and will be handicap accessible and overlook the Shell Rock River.
Sears is excited to see progress with the project.
"We're just really excited to get the cabin project underway. It's gonna happen, and it's a matter of raising the funds to get it done."
The project will be funded by private individuals and grants, and contributions are tax deductible.
