LOWER MALAD PARK ON SNAKE RIVER TO CLOSE
The Idaho Power park will be closed March 1 through September during renovation of the Lower Malad Power Plant.
The park, located north of Hagerman, includes a day-use area with access to the Snake River. Boaters who want to launch on the Snake River can do so below Lower Salmon Dam at the confluence of the Malad and Snake rivers, just upstream of Lower Malad Park. Other Idaho Power parks and river access points in and around the Malad Project remain open. Nearby Malad Gorge State Park also is not affected by the closure.
