Beaches and Rivers
Skookumchuck Recreation Site
Skooumchuck is a great place to spend a day by the river on a hot day. It is minutes from the Whitebird Summit Lodge and has a great picnic along the Lower Salmon River. The beach is large and picnic tables are in a grassy area above the river. The picnic area also has grills for public use. Black berry bushes are a real treat in August. This BLM Recreation Site is along Hwy. 95 between Riggins and White Bird. There are restrooms and drinking water. Pets are allowed at this day-use area.
It is also a great fihsing spot for those who are looking to catch some bass fish. Remember to ask Terri to use the beach umbrellas, and take lots of water when you head down to the beach for the day. The sun is warm and there is lots of it!
Visit this site for more information on outdoor recreation.
We have white sandy beaches along the Salmon River, the Snake River and the Southfork of the Clearwater river. All within minutes from the lodge. Great picnic areas along all the rivers and some of the most scenic waterways in the world. Shore line fishing can be done along all these rivers. Tubing down the Clearwater river always shows to be a fun time.
The Southfork of the Clearwater River is located outside Grangeville along Highway 14 on a scenic drive to Elk city.
