The Martin Access Area for the Snake River near Parma will be closed most of October for a major renovation, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game announced.
Martin Access Area is located off Hexon Road on the south bank of the mouth of the Boise River about 5.5 miles from Parma.
The $210,000 project includes a designated RV camping area with 11 RV sites and a camp host site, two pit vault toilets, overhead security lighting, improved parking area and overflow camping, three primitive camping areas near the banks of the Snake and Boise Rivers, gravel footpaths leading to the river banks and a new gravel access road.
The area will be closed to the public while work is being completed, which expected to be at the end of October. The finished project is intended to offer better access to fishing and camping along the Snake and Boise rivers, F&G said.
The camping area will be managed cooperatively by Canyon County Parks and Recreation and Idaho Fish and Game.
The new facilities will provide families a place to fish, hike and watch wildlife, according to F&G.
The area will also be available to people floating or motor boating on the Snake and Boise River water trails.
The project is funded by federal grants and an Idaho State Parks RV grant.
