Google Maps is hardly the only one incorrectly labeling "state park
properties" as "state parks".  The parks department does it as well.

I recently visited what may or may not have been a "state parks
property", and the signs calling it "Riverside State Park" outnumbered
those calling it "Fisk State Park Property" 2 to 1.  For that matter,
the signs calling it "Lake Spokane State Park" were just as numerous as
those calling it a "state park property".
