Just last year, Fish and Game, partnering with Canyon County Parks and Recreation, secured a $210,000 grant from Idaho Parks and Recreation to give the area - just northwest of Parma on the Snake River - a much-needed face lift.
Since then, a new access road, parking area, walking paths, tent camping pads, pit-vault toilets and 11 RV sites have been constructed at the area now known as Martin Landing. When completed, Martin Landing will be jointly managed by both partnering agencies.
Plans call for a volunteer campground host to be on site when Martin opens in July.
"We're looking for a person or persons to meet and greet the camping public throughout the summer and serve as ambassadors for Fish and Game and Canyon County Parks and Recreation," Fish and Game recreation site maintenance foreman, Dennis Hardy said. "Providing information, troubleshooting for campers and gently enforcing area rules are just some of the duties associated with this volunteer position."
The volunteer position does include a "host" RV site with full hookups.
For more information or to apply for this volunteer position, contact Hardy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-465-8465; or CCPR Director Tom Bicak at email@example.com/ or 208-440-4600.
