Where we are headed!
Legacy Park Trust Inc. is an Idaho non-profit (501c3 applied for) whose purpose is to purchase, manage and preserve Cowboy Campground at Legacy Park in Idaho City, Idaho. Through the generous financial support of our original stakeholders the land title was provisionally secured in August 2020 and many improvements have already been made.
Our next major goal is to raise enough funds so that the land and the resources can be transferred into a Trust. Through fund-raising, private donations, sponsorships and corporate gifts Legacy Park Trust will be able to protect this resource for generations to come.
A Trust account has been created at .......TBA................., whose sole purpose will be to hold donations in-trust until such time enough money has been raised for the buyout. The donations will be tax deductible.
Our Mission: To provide and preserve a public access to the equestrian trails in the Boise National Forest and a venue for the promotion of outdoor recreational activities, equine-oriented events, and opportunities to advance and enhance physical, emotional and spiritual growth in the community.
Once the buyout has been completed, the Legacy Park Trust Board will hire an executive Director to manage the grounds as intended. Ongoing fund-raising will be needed to support the great programs and events that Legacy Park and Cowboy Campground will offer. A few of these will be; affordable wedding venues, retreats, horse camping events, as well as free and discounted summer camps for 4-H and other youth events. Our mission is to promote and provide services for outdoor education, challenges for health, fitness and to nurture healing.
Just a scenic hour drive from Boise, Legacy Park and Cowboy Campground is a step back in time where we can relive the fun of camping and attending youth events.
Idahoans are quickly losing access to open lands to development, our first goal is to save Cowboy Campground at Legacy Park by the 501c3 creation of a non-revocable land trust.
We are actively looking for grants and funding to help make this “gem in the rough” a vital place for future generations to enjoy. Organizations interested in helping to raise funds or to help with the completion of projects, will receive a pre-arranged exchange for the use of the facility. All donations to Legacy Park Trust Inc. are tax deductible and will be used for the purchase of the park and improvements. Now is your chance to help create a legacy for future families and organizations to utilize and enjoy.
Cowboy Campground LLC already has a solid reputation as good neighbors in Boise County and are also giving back to the Idaho City Community by supporting their Foodbank and Chamber or Commerce fundraisers.
We are grateful to everyone who has already donated and pledged their support for our mission. We hope you will support Cowboy Campground by choosing us as the location for your next equestrian camping trip, clinic, competition or event. Utilizing our “Old West” facilities (refurbished miners cabins and Western Chapel) for a wedding memorial, family or group gathering.
