Baumgartner Campground Closed Due To 2013 Fire


By Brittany Cooper

Fairfield, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Last summer's Kelley Fire will impact the upcoming camping season.

The Baumgartner Campground and hot springs pool are closed until further notice.

The campground was spared, but some of the area nearby including the interpretive trail and slopes directly above were burned.

Once the hazards have been mitigated, the campground will be available.

Some trails and roads may also be closed due to the damage.

But the Kelley Group Site (Site 100), located across the river from Baumgartner Campground, will remain open and you can book for group reservations.

For further details, please call the Fairfield Ranger District at 208-764-3202.
