Madison - Federal officials have handed over nearly 2,000 acres of land at an abandoned World War II-era ammunition plant to the state.

Gov. Jim Doyle's office says the National Parks Service gave the land to the state free of charge. Doyle says the state is in line to get another 1,500 acres at the plant when the U.S. Army completes contamination clean-up.

The governor says the land will be used to create the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area, connecting Devil's Lake State Park to the Wisconsin River.
