Bureau of Park Operations

The Bureau of Parks Operations oversees the management, operation and maintenance of the 92 State Park properties.  The properties include campgrounds, beaches, day-use facilities, waysides, and natural areas. The Retail Operations at the parks are managed by the Division of Parks and Recreation.

The state park system is divided up into management regions that have regional managers who are responsible for the day-to-day operations in parks.  The three regions and three management areas are: the Great North Woods Region, the Central Region, the South Region, Mount Washington State Park,  Franconia Notch State Park and Seacoast Area State Parks. 

Also, under the Bureau's supervision is the Planning and Development Office which oversees projects around the state and does planning and permitting for projects. Current projects include the Connecticut Lakes Headwaters Working Forest Recreation Program.
