Development Projects

Development Bureau 

The IDPR Development Department is in charge of all IDPR related building and maintenance projects; everything from campsite upgrades to the construction of new visitor centers.


 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.
