Improvements, expansion possible for popular Lucky Peak marina

The Sundance Company

BOISEDEV FIRST MEMBER PREVIEW STORY

The Springs Shores Marina on the north shore of Lucky Peak Reservoir could get a series of upgrades.

The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation started a feasibility study for improvements and possible expansion of the area. A boater survey is currently live, taking feedback until June 28th.

The survey asks boaters to rank amenities like cost, power, wi-fi, fuel facilities, parking, showers and more. It also asks boaters if they “were able to keep your boat in a slip at Spring Shores Marina, would you choose that option over trailer launching your boat?”

Idaho Parks and Rec held a public meeting on June 8th where it presented concept alternative plans. Each of the concepts includes a parking expansion area.

The four study variants also show scenarios for changes to the in-water portion of the marina itself. Right now, the marina has 298 slips. The concepts would reconfigure the marina – with as few as 292 slips and as many as 546.

Concept A

Concept A provides space to park 292 boats. Two-hundred-fifty-two of the spots would be 25 feet in length, while 40 slips would be thirty feet in length. The layout and pattern would be similar to the current marina design.

Concept B

Concept B would increase the number of slips to 402. Three-hundred-thirty-four of the spots would provide 25 feet of space, while another 68 spots would measure 30 feet. This concept also includes a large floating wave attenuator along the outside rim of the marina. The attenuator would have an additional 2,600 linear feet of broadside space for boats. Each pier would connect directly to the shoreline.

Concept C

Concept C is similar to the previous idea, but drops the wave attenuator. It includes a total of 390 slips – with 324 for boats 25 feet long, and another 66 for 30 foot boats. The docks would be connected to the shore with just three gangways.

Concept D

Concept D provides the largest expansion – with space for 546 boats in slips. It would flip the orientation of the marina to parallel the shoreline, and would also include the floating wave attenuator. The attenuator includes 1,700 feet of broadside space.

Take the survey

You can take the full survey online through June 28th.
