Campground

(IDAHO FALLS, ID) — The Bureau of Land Management is now requiring a $35 fee for large group reservations at the Birch Creek Campground. Officials say they receive several requests to reserve sites every year for family reunions and church outings, and that a reservation system can’t be implemented unless fees are in place. The fee would guarantee exclusive group camping sites for those who reserve them. Prior to the new policy, there was no legal way for the BLM to maintain camp sites for exclusive groups.
