Improvements Closes Martin Access Area

The Martin Access Area will be closed most of October for a major renovation.

The project includes a designated RV camping site 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.

Martin is on the south bank of the Boise River mouth 5.5 miles from Parma off State Highway 95. The area will be closed to the public while work is being completed from the first week of October through the end of the month.

For information, please contact the Fish and Game regional office in Nampa at 208-465-8465.

The finished project is intended to offer better access to fishing and camping along the Snake and Boise rivers. 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. 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. The total estimate project cost is $210,000.
