Grants Sought To Fix Intruded Campgrounds

Palisades Bridge

The Palisades Ranger District is seeking grant money from the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation to restructure the campground at the foot of Palisades Dam to accommodate a road that now runs directly through it.  The grant request seeks money to reroute the roads through the Calamity Campground that need to be changed due to the relocation of Forest Service Road 76 across a new bridge, replacing access across Palisades Dam.  Likewise, Spokesman Lynn Ballard says funds are being sought to build new campsites in the Riverside Campground that will be lost due to the road reroute accommodating the new bridge below Palisades Dam.  Dispostion of the grants is anticipated in May with the awarding of the grants to take place in June.

  • Hauling hay makes me consider ATVs - July 28, 2014
    In my days in the mountains, I’ve seen some horse wrecks that probably should have turned my hair gray prematurely. I’ve had horses go lame on me deep in the backcountry. And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]
