With Martin Landing slated for a grand opening sometime in July, Idaho Fish and Game is looking for the right volunteer to serve as campground host for the newly renovated area that remains a work in progress.
Just last year, Fish and Game worked with Canyon County Parks and Recreation to secure 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 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.
