The Buhl Chamber of Commerce has completed a RV parking facility on the chamber property.
The RV park consists of four parking lanes that will be used year round providing water, electricity, and a sanitary station to travelers.
The park was funded through an Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation grant.
"We are very proud of the community and this idea was presented to us quite awhile ago. We put it all together over a span of a year. We are very proud of our community and we wanted to share it with people traveling through the scenic byway” said Richard Stoltenburg, Buhl Chamber of Commerce.
Travelers can stay at the park for a maximum of three nights.

From WKSU Radio, Kent:
The Cleveland Metropark system seems closer to taking control of Cleveland’s state-run lakefront parks. A decline in state funding has left the six parks along Lake Erie in disrepair. As WKSU’s Kevin Niedermier reports, many people hope the successful Metroparks can turn them around.
The Metroparks board recently approved the lease of property along the Cuyahoga River, authorized seeking funding for a beach ambassador program, and unveiled an Edgewater State Park revitalization plan. Metroparks Executive Director Brian Zimmerman says the system has been working with the state and the lakefront park’s owner, the City of Cleveland, on a takeover strategy.
“We’ve working on it and have presented a number of different work sessions to the board of park commissioners over the last six months looking at some business plans and models, and looking at strategies for making them part of the Emerald Necklace.”
Zimmerman says talks are ongoing, and he cannot estimate when a decision will be made. The Metroparks estimates the lakefront parks need about $16million in deferred maintenance.
The other state-run lakefront parks are Euclid Beach, Wildwood, Villa Angela, Gordon Park and the East 55th Street Marina.
