Lewiston Idaho Travel
To take a trip to the Middle Salmon Fork with our RV rental was like nothing we had ever experienced. The area is located in a beautiful part of Idaho, just a few miles north of Lewiston, and has a mild winter and an amazing summer.
It is also somewhat temperate compared to tourist destinations worldwide, with temperatures in the mid-60s and 70s in summer and a mild winter.
If you are looking for a very warm time to visit Lewiston, the hottest months are July, August and then June. If you are looking for dry weather, it is July and August, then September, but there is also a good chance of a few days in the mid-60s and 70s during the summer months. This guide recommends a trip to Lewistown in late July or early August or late September, if the weather is good.
If you are in the area for a rafting trip on the Snake River, you will have the opportunity to get a taste of your upcoming adventure, retrace your journey and experience the geography and wildlife of the river and the canyon from top to bottom. There are recreational opportunities and some of these recreational areas are located in and around the canyons.
If you enjoy driving roads that normally end in car spots, you will enjoy Spiral Road in Lewiston, Idaho.

The snake on the west side of the city makes a left turn to get into neighboring Clarkston, Washington and then back down the Snake River.
After passing farms containing fertile soil that was blown over from Oregon thousands of years ago, turn right onto Spiral Road. From here you can climb to altitudes of up to 2,000 feet above sea level and then down again to Lewiston.
Then head south on Spiral Road to the town of Lewiston and then west on the road to a small car park at the end of the road.

On the way west, one enters the Snake River Canal, an area eroded by floods 12,000 years ago when hundreds of meters of water flooded the area. The Lower Snake River crosses four dams and then turns south into the town of Lewiston, Idaho at the mouth of the Clearwater River. It is home to one of Idaho's most famous waterfalls, the Great Falls, and is home to the largest waterfall in the United States and the world. While the west - the Clearwaters River - forms the northern border of this city, the Snake River flows from Hells Canyon and forms the state border with Washington.
This cruise, available only in October and November, traces the journey of Lewis and Clark as they crossed America and the Pacific Northwest in the early 19th century. The Lewis & Clark expedition camped here in 1804, while the fur traders followed the advice of the US Army Corps of Engineers, who told them they would camp there if they found a Northwest Passage to the Pacific. You will also find that Lewiston served as a steamboat pier to support the gold rush from 1860 onwards.
The lowest point in Idaho is near Lewiston, where the Snake River meets Clearwater and flows west to Washington.
