IDPR Seeking Grants – Public Input Sought

 Bear Lake Seeking WIF Grant Funding

Bear Lake State Park is seeking grant funding from the Waterways Improvement Fund (WIF) to replace the boat ramp at the North Beach unit of the park. The current concrete ramp is being washed out and is failing. This project will replace undermined portions of the boat ramp, protect the concrete, widen the launch lanes, pave the boat ready area, and improve traffic flow and trailer parking. Bear Lake State Park is applying for $180,000 from the WIF program.

If you have any comments or questions related to this project or the application, please contact Melanie Schuster, Development Bureau Chief, at (208) 514-2469 or

Deadline for comments is January 17, 2023.


 Some of the major projects underway include:

  • Billingsley Creek Campground: IDPR is constructing a 50 unit RV campground at the Billingsley Creek Unit of Thousand Springs State Park in Hagerman. The RV campground will have water, sewer, and 50amp electrical hookups, as well as a shower house. The campground will be adjacent to the newly completed visitors center shared between IDPR and The National Park Service.
