Suggested Local Attractions

The best attraction in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley (LC Valley) is the rivers. Lewiston sits on the southeast corner of the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater Rivers. Clarkston, WA sits on the west side of the Snake River.

The Lower Granite Dam in Washington backs up both rivers creating slack water upriver for a several miles. This allows for boating and water skiing. Another major local attraction is the jet boat tours up the Snake River into the deep Hells Canyon gorge. Google "Hells Canyon jet boat tours" for more information. The area is also famous for its steelhead fishing. There is also bicycling along the paved levees.

For river rafters, there are guided trips down the Lochsa/Clearwter Rivers to the east and the Salmon River to the south. There are also guided raft tours down the Snake River through Hells Canyon.

The LC Valley sports four golf courses, and golfers can usually golf year round

There are several campgrounds eastward along U.S. Highway 12 in the Clearwater/Nez Perce National Forest. For hiking and backpacking enthusiasts, Lewiston is close to the Eagle Cap Wilderness in the northeastern corner of Oregon, the huge Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness to the east, and the Seven Devils area to the south.

If you are passing through during the winter, we are usually snow-free. However, one exception was February 2019 when we had plenty of snow. The elevation of downtown Lewiston is 800 feet, and we sit on a bench at 1,450 feet above sea level. The LC Valley area is the lowest elevation in Idaho and also has the mildest climate.

For shopping, our local Walmart and Costco are in Clarkston, and Home Depot is in Lewiston. We have two or three RV dealers in the valley.

Wonderful experience

We had a wonderful stay with Lancer. The hosts were very helpful with directions and helping us get settled. They shared breakfast with us and we left with some yummy vegetables from their garden. Very gracious hosts.

Welcoming hosts

Our host was in touch with us several days ahead of our arrival and provided very detailed directions. The parking spot was a little tight but he repositioned his vehicles and that left us enough room. We had a nice conversation with him in the evening while still social distancing. Appreciated the electric hook up Which allowed us to run our a/c especially since it was a very hot day.

Great spot......... with a garden!

Very nice family! Great spot to stay in Lewiston, ID. Really enjoyed dinner and breakfast and talking with the whole family. I loved the hands on attention in helping me back my trailer in to the camper spot, and the garden tour was also amazing. They went above and beyond any expectation. Even called the local RV supplies store for me to find a door-open latch. Great people!!

Great stop in Lewiston

We stayed with Lancer in early August, 2017 and had a great visit, in spite of the pervasive haze from forest fires. Good parking spot, easy to find. On the edge of town and close to services, but in a quiet area with some small farms/ranches. The outgoing hosts we're very welcoming and made us feel right at home. Be sure to get a tour of their awesome garden - impressive! We had the opportunity to join the family for meals and enjoyed interesting and wide-ranging discussions. We look forward to the possibility for a return visit, and highly recommend them as hosts if you are planning to be in their area.

Very helpful hosts!

We were planning a trip through Lewiston and made arrangements to stay with Lancer. However due to extreme forest fire activity in that part of Idaho, heavy smoke and road closures we were forced to change our plans. Our would be hosts went above and beyond to keep us informed of local conditions even getting up in the middle of the night to send us an update and were very helpful in adjusting our plans. We will be back to stay with Lance another day when the smoke is cleared and the fires settled.
God Bless and stay safe
