Pirogue Island State Park
Posted by Hillary (+69) 5 years ago
The gate at entry was driven into and bent this weekend/past week. It busted the post. I hope it also busted the perpetrator's vehicle. To whomever did this: this is vandalism, it is a crime, and you should be ashamed of yourself. The state does not provide these beautiful parks for your destructive enjoyment. To the friends/acquaintances of the person(s) responsible: if you know or suspect who did this I encourage you to turn them in. Their only hope of becoming a decent citizen anytime soon is to have consequences for their poor decisions.

So the gate was locked and the vandal drove through the gate....Is the park locked up every night?

The vandal drove into the gate bending it. It is always locked to vehicle traffic. It is a foot traffic, bicycle, equestrian park with a nice parking area and vault bathrooms. People walk their dogs, hunt birds, and bowhunt there.

Hilary - have you reported this to FWP? If not, PLEASE do so ASAP! You can also call 1-800-TIPMONT.

You will have to call Region 5 - Billings - for a Parks issue in Eastern Montana. We learned this summer that Region 7 - Miles City - 'officially' has NO Parks. [A political move by the FORMER FWP Director, Joe Maurier.]

Not sure why I'm explaining this but here we go, they lock the gate so people don't drive where they're not allowed to drive. Why does your house have a door on the front of it?

So the neighbors have a place to come in and visit?

Because my house isn't public property?

Ok bad reference there. My fault. If they only had signs up saying walk in from here, when would the first person drive in there and just say sorry I didn't see the sign. They put the locked gate up to keep vehicles from entering the park.
