The Salmon River in Idaho is a premier family vacation destination in the Northwest, providing jaw-dropping scenery, excellent fishing and hunting, camping, wildlife galore, pristine nature, white-water rafting trips and jet-boat action, swimming, hiking, bird-watching along with plenty of history and culture. The Salmon River in Idaho is the longest free-flowing river in the contiguous United States and together with White Bird, this area is a family vacation paradise.
White Bird, Idaho, is fortunate to be so near the Salmon River, offering visitors and residents unparalled year ‘round outdoor adventure, expert outfitters, family fun, friendly lodging and many services, excellent private and public campgrounds, and exceptional vacation suites.
Our area is often referred to as the ‘Twin River’ area by local residents because of the Salmon River in our backyard, and the nearby Snake River in Hells Canyon, which can be accessed by a 45 minute drive directly from White Bird. Hells Canyon is North America’s deepest gorge, and the entire wilderness area – Hells Canyon National Recreation Area – encompasses a vast and remote region carved by the Snake River. There are no roads across Hells Canyon’s 10-mile wide expanse, and only three roads that lead to the Snake River between Hells Canyon Dam and the Oregon-Washington boundary, and one of those roads is from White Bird, Idaho. Hiking adventures, ATV or 4-wheel rides, wildlife viewing and plenty of fishing from all points west, north, east and south of White Bird, Idaho.
