Idaho is located on the Salmon River in central Idaho We live at the foot of
the beautiful Beaverhead mountain range. This is the place to come to really
get away from it all. The drive into Salmon is through the beautiful wild lands
of Central Idaho.
Once you are here, we offer tops in service, shopping and that small-town friendly
feel. Welcome and visit us often.
One of the unknown treats of Salmon, Idaho is our fantastic museum. It's always
worth a trip through. New! Check out the fantastic new Museum
We are an important point on the Lewis
and Clark Trail and the birthplace of Sacajawea.
The Lewis and Clark party left the Missouri river over in Montana, and met Sacajawea's
brother up in the Beaverhead mountains. They proceeded down into the Lemhi and
Salmon valleys in search of the Salmon river, hoping to continue on a water
way to the ocean. They soon changed their minds about the Salmon River - and
gave it the name "The River of No Return." Dejected, they set off through the
cold over Lost Trail Pass, where they lost the trail, and headed north into
the coming winter of Montana.
We are famous for our "River of No Return" from a movie by that same name, staring
Marilyn Monroe. Though filmed in Canada, the movie was based on the Salmon,
We enjoy river rafting, kayaking, downhill and cross-country skiing, snowmobiling,
mountain biking, hiking, hunting and fishing.
