America's Favorite Park: Bear Head Lake


We’re proud to announce that Bear Head Lake State Park is the winner of the $100,000 grant from Coca-Cola.

Thank you for voting. We were overwhelmed by your support for America's parks. We received over 5.7 million votes with more than 28% of the votes going to the winning park. You donated nearly 500,000 My Coke Rewards points and over $25,000 through direct donations to the National Park Foundation. In addition, Coca-Cola also donated $200,000 to the National Park Foundation and $100,000 to Bear Head Lake State Park. Overall, Coca-Cola donated more than $500,000 in grants to national, state and local parks across the country this summer for new equipment such as bikes and kayaks, and the restoration and construction of activity areas.

For more than 40 years, Coca-Cola has supported America’s national parks. Through our support of individual parks and the National Park Foundation, we’ve helped maintain and rebuild 260 miles of trails so families can be active together while enjoying the great outdoors. In the last 4 years we’ve donated over 4 million dollars to national parks for restoration and renovation. Thanks again for your support of America’s parks.
