ROGERSON, Idaho (KLIX)-Six new cabanas will be built over picnic areas at a the campgrounds next to Salmon Falls Creek Reservoir west of Rogerson.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) said crews will begin replacing the covers, or cabanas, at Lud Drexler Park beginning August 3, and work should last for about three months. The cabanas provide shade over the picnic tables at the campground where there is few trees for shade.
