Despite its size, history, remoteness, and ominous sounding nickname, the Salmon River is incredibly friendly and comfortable. It features warm summer days lasting until nearly 10 p.m., cool nights perfect for sleeping under the stars, water temps perfect for swimming, natural hot springs to soak in, perhaps the best beach camping anywhere, world-class trout fishing, hikes, history and whitewater that is exciting and fun. People say it feels wild, untouched, and rugged but at the same time comfortable, forgiving, and almost luxurious – a journey that combines a perfect beach vacation with the solitude, beauty, vast wilderness, and excitement of a mountain whitewater river expedition.
The whitewater features big-water wave trains punctuated by calm green pools. It is fun and exciting, yet great for almost any age level. Our first trip in 2017 was spectacular! The paddlers included an 18 year old and his 81 year old grandfather (who styled all the rapids), with paddlers from almost every decade between. All agreed this is a river trip to repeat!
