Idaho Fish and Game is seeking public input about proposed improvements to the Silver Creek West and Silver Creek East access site in the Wood River Valley.
According to a release, the plans include the construction of designated campsites and other campground improvements.
In this effort, Fish and Game is developing an Idaho Parks and Recreation grant application through the RV grant program. The proposal will seek monies to construct designated camping sites and camping improvements in both Silver Creek access sites.
In addition to fire rings and picnic tables, the department is proposing a fixed number of campsites in each location using hardened borders and crushed gravels.
“The goal is to enrich the camping experience for visitors by reducing user conflicts while addressing the issue of fire safety along Silver Creek and reducing resource damage,” the release reads.
The proposal also includes day-use parking at both sites.
The public is invited to an open house to learn more about the proposed site changes on January 13, 2022 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Magic Valley Regional Office located at 324 South 417 East off Highway 93 in Jerome.
For those unable to attend, written comments may be submitted until January 21, 2022, by emailing Regional Fisheries Manager Mike Peterson at [email protected]
