Idaho Campground Owner Charged With Taking Video of Showering Camper


The Idaho State Journal reports that eastern Idaho law enforcement said a Lava Hot Springs public official admitted to them he had looked under a shower door on dozens of occasions at a Bannock County campground that he owns and manages.

The Journal reports that Cory Unsworth, chairman of the Lava Hot Springs Planning and Zoning Commission and the owner of the Lava Springs KOA campground, faces a Wednesday, Dec. 19, court date, when he'll answer to a felony count of video voyeurism.

The charge against Unsworth came after a Utah woman said she saw a cellphone pointed toward her from beneath a shower room door during a November stay at the campground.

Bannock County Sheriff's Office told the Journal that Unsworth initially showed law enforcement a cellphone that didn't match the description given by the victim, but Unsworth later acknowledged that he had replaced the cover on his phone to throw police off the trail. Court documents also reveal that Unsworth said he had taken as many as 30 videos over the last four years.

According to the Journal, Unsworth remains the chairman of the county's planning and zoning commission.
