 Some of the major projects underway include:

  • Ponderosa: A $1.3 million package to improve safety, upgrade facilities and better manage the MeadowMarsh Forest began in September 2020 and will run through the winter, when visitor activity slows and the weather favors rehabilitation work. The construction work includes utility upgrades to the Aspen Loop in the Peninsula Campground, paving of the road to Osprey Point, and the repair of the Peninsula Boat Ramp. Details
  • Thousand Springs Visitors Center: Construction of a $2.5 million, 3,400-square-foot building started in late September and will last for a year. The project will unite Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation with the National Park Service, becoming a central location for Thousand Springs State Park and the Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument. Details
  • Repairs and improvements totaling about $1.1 million is underway at four parks: Thousand Springs (Box Canyon); Priest Lake (Lionhead), Farragut (Eagle Cove Boat Launch), and Bear Lake (East Beach). Funding came from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and is intended to mitigate a record-breaking year for visitation — and use — of Idaho State Parks. Details
