The scenery is beyond belief -- so remote and unpopulated. We glamped in the beautiful and comfortable tents. The beds were heavenly. The composting toilet was incredibly clean. The clawfoot tub on the back deck was pure heaven under the stars with the sound of the creek in the background. It's well worth the trek to get there and the...

I can't say enough good things about the River Dance Lodge. First and foremost the staff was INCREDIBLE. Rachel, Jin and Greg take obvious pride in the food and facilities and really gave us personalized attention. We also rafted with Row Adventures for 2 days and the guides are some of the best that we've ever had. Chris, Brian, Sam...

Our large group of 40 stayed over the weekend for a 1 day rafting trip. The Paddler cabin was a fantastic option with plenty of space to hold the 7 adults we had in our one cabin; it could have actually slept two more. It was clean and stocked with basic necessities to prepare meals on the bbq outside. The...

We stopped in here for one night on our family trip to Idaho, the only problem we had was that we didn't get to stay here longer. To start, the setting is beautiful. Highway 12 through Idaho is unbelievable and this lodge sits just across the highway from the Middle Fork of the Clearwater River. The grounds are maintained exceptionally...
