There will soon be a new six-acre primitive campground south of Tetonia, Idaho. The Taylor family has been in discussion with the Teton County planning department and after approval from the county commissioner at a public hearing last week, they are nearly ready to break ground, the Teton Valley News reported.
Their 20-acre property is currently undeveloped, and rather than pave the way for housing, the family would rather see six acres along South Leigh Creek host up to 25 campers at 10 campsites with fire pits.
The property lies within the scenic corridor, as it falls in line with county goals of supporting local business, preserving the rural character and culture, and it conserves public lands, trails and natural resources.
The Taylor Family Campground will run from May 15 to Oct. 15 and offer access to foot, 4-wheeler and horse trails, fresh water for campers and porta potties, but first they need to construct an access road off of State Highway 33 and draw the rules for the campsite.
