This state park-in-the-making gets dedicated this week, with 8,000 acres straddling the John Day River on north-central Oregon's grain belt loop. The Cottonwood Canyon State Park day-use area and campground is on the Sherman County (west) side of the river. Trails are being built on the Gilliam County (east) side.
