BEAVER BAY, Minn. (AP) _ One of Minnesota's more popular state parks is getting a new campground.

Work continues this year on a project to add Split Rock's first drive-in camping option.

The Shipwreck Creek campground is tentatively planned to open in the fall, with 46 sites with electric service and a modern shower and bathroom facility.

The park near Beaver Bay currently has only walk-in and cart-in campsites.

Park manager Katie Foshay says that lots of people are looking for the drive-in sites.

The project also includes a parking lot for hikers and mountain bikers, to access both the Gitchi-Gami State Trail and a network of new mountain bike trails being constructed by Lake County adjacent to the park.
