About Us

Bill Stirling founded the Cowboy Campground in 1985 in order to provide horse and family friendly camping opportunities to continue the cowboy camping experience for all.  The Idaho City Cowboy Campground has been a steady favorite for horse owners and riding clubs ever since. 

The Cowboy Campground recently came up for sale and a team of concerned horsemen quickly activated and started Cowboy Campground LLC and are also busy creating a 501(c)3 Legacy Foundation to purchase, run and manage the Cowboy Campground at Legacy Park in the future, to preserve the dream and vision that Bill Stirling had for the land.

Area horsemen and women joined on board and caught the vision enabling the team headed by Sabrina Amidon, Pastor Frank & Kim Hartmann and Diane Carty to purchase and preserve the vision and dream Bill had for the land.  

The group raised $140,000 in short three weeks for the down payment needed to make the purchase.  We are also in the process of forming a 501(c)3 Legacy Foundation to own, manage and maintain the Cowboy Campground @Legacy Park.

The Legacy Dreamers

Bill Stirling had a dream and vision for providing horse and family friendly camping opportunities to continue the cowboy camping experience for all.  The Idaho City Cowboy Campground has been a steady favorite for horse owners, clubs and events.   

Bill graduated to the great campground in the sky this past year and his family decided to sell the Cowboy Campground.  Bob and Sabrina Amidon, avid horsemen and equine events promoters, heard about the sale and quickly formed a team of horsemen to purchase and help keep this public icon available to horsemen and their families for generations to come.   Pastor  Frank and Kim Hartmann and Diane Carty share their vision to preserve the Cowboy Campground for the public use and have been hard at work notifying area horsemen of the opportunity to form the Legacy Foundation to purchase and preserve the Cowboy Campground for generations to come and enjoy.  Thus the Cowboy Campground at Legacy Park has been established to ensure the campground will be around for families and friends to enjoy for years to come! 

They are working on getting the property ownership under a newly formed 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the  Legacy Foundation who will own, run, and manage the Cowboy Campground at Legacy Park.

The group is working on establishing fundraisers to help raise the necessary funds to purchase, run and maintain the Cowboy Campground @Legacy Park.  Watch for more information on how you can help financially by:

  • Purchasing an engraved Memorial Brick  for the courtyard area for your family or business
  • Purchasing a Memorial Bench for the campsites sponsored by your family or business
  • Adopt a Campsite -  providing horse panels, fire pit and picnic table named after your family or business
  • Purchasing Cowboy Campground merchandise to help support the general fund.
