The main road into the Idaho Fish and Game's Martin Access Area will remain closed through at least the middle of November.
Renovation work at the site was scheduled for completion in late October, but the contractor will need additional time to complete the project.
The access area remains open to all users as it has since the project began. Guests can simply park on the main road adjacent to the access area and walk in from there.
The renovation project includes construction of a new gravel access road, development of 11 designated RV camping sites and a camp host site, two vault toilets, overhead security lighting, an improved parking area with overflow camping, three primitive tent camping areas near the confluence of the Snake and Boise Rivers and a gravel foot trail leading to the river confluence.
The finished project will offer better access to fishing and camping along the Snake and Boise Rivers, with the camping area managed cooperatively by Canyon County Parks and Recreation and Idaho Fish and Game. At a total cost of $210,000, 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 both federal and Idaho State Parks RV grants.
