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 few 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, the winter of 2016-2017 was a definite exception. 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.
Enjoyed the stay with our hosts so much that we returned to stay with them again four nights later. Thanks again!!! and catch you on the trail.
We over nighted in the driveway next to the house with facilities and access as host described.
Our hosts were generous of spirit, knowledge, friendship and resource. A fine and happy family.

Thanks for your hospitality and tasty breakfast. Robert and Nelleke of the Netherlands.
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!!
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.
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
