Croy Creek Campground

The Croy Creek Campground would include 33 sites.

A split Hailey City (Idaho) Council moved closer to building a campground in Croy Canyon on Monday (Jan. 25) night, with Mayor Martha Burke casting the tie-breaking vote needed for her to submit a grant application to the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation seeking $731,340 to help fund the 33-site proposal, according to the Idaho Mountain Express.

But after a well-attended meeting — culminating in a 3-2 vote — the city vowed to hold a series of public workshops in the coming months to fine-tune the campground proposal using community input, with a goal of reaching communitywide consensus by late spring.

As currently proposed, Croy Creek Campground would span about four acres on a 29-acre city-owned parcel between Mountain Humane and Lions Park. The campground would offer 24 pull-in RV sites, nine camping areas with tent platforms, two ADA-compliant vault toilets, picnic tables, fire rings and other amenities, including dishwashing stations and potable water, for an as-yet undecided nightly fee.
