Horsethief Reservoir Seeks Summer Host
Horsethief Reservoir is a summer weekend fishing destination for thousands of Idahoans. But the right person could spend the remainder of the summer there in 2013, serving as host for the Fish and Game-owned reservoir and camping area.
“We’re looking for a person or persons to meet and greet the camping public throughout the summer and serve as ambassadors for the Department of Fish and Game,” recreation site maintenance foreman, Dennis Hardy said. “Providing information, troubleshooting for campers and gently enforcing area rules are just some of the duties associated with the position.”
Applications are currently being accepted for the position of camp host at the popular recreation site. This is an unpaid, volunteer position, and applicants must have a fully self-contained recreational vehicle. A small per diem is offered to help hosts defer some expenses.
Located just east of Cascade, the 260-acre site is situated within a forested area, giving it a high mountain lake appearance. Horsethief is managed as a rainbow trout fishery and is a popular summer destination for anglers and other recreationalists.
For additional information or to apply for the volunteer host position, contact Dennis Hardy at Fish and Game’s Southwest Region office in Nampa, 208-465-8465 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Martin Landing Summer Host Sought
With Martin Landing slated for a grand opening sometime in July, Fish and Game is looking for the right volunteer to serve as campground host for the newly renovated area that remains a work in progress.
Just last year, Fish and Game partnering with Canyon County Parks and Recreation to secure a $210,000 grant from Idaho Parks and Recreation to give the area – located just northwest of Parma on the Snake River – a much-needed face lift. Since then, a new access road, parking area, walking paths, tent camping pads, pit-vault toilets and 11 RV sites have been constructed at the area now known as Martin Landing. When completed, Martin Landing will be jointly managed by both partnering agencies.
Plans call for a volunteer campground host to be on site when Martin opens in July. “We’re looking for a person or persons to meet and greet the camping public throughout the summer and serve as ambassadors for Fish and Game, and Canyon County Parks and Recreation, F&G recreation site maintenance foreman," Dennis Hardy said. “Providing information, troubleshooting for campers and gently enforcing area rules are just some of the duties associated with this volunteer position.” The volunteer position does include a “host” RV site with full hookups.
For more information or to apply for this volunteer position, contact Hardy at firstname.lastname@example.org /(208-465-8465) or CCPR Director Tom Bicak at email@example.com/(208-440-4600).
