Salmon, Idaho Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Salmon (pop. 3,500) is a small town in northeast Idaho surrounded by beautiful wilderness on all sides. Nestled at the convergence of the Salmon and Lemhi rivers, Salmon is more than a hundred miles from the nearest large town, one of the community's major selling points.

Sitting at the base of the Bitterroot Mountains which form the border between Montana and Idaho, Salmon is surrounded by some of the most untouched wilderness in the country. The town is on the doorstep of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness area, encompassing several hundred square miles of pristine forest and mountains. The Middle Fork of the Salmon River draws thrill-seekers from around the world to its whitewater stretches. The other famous nearby river is the Salmon itself, a key destination for anglers seeking trout, steelhead, and, of course, the Chinook salmon who swim upstream each year through its waters.

The town itself is a small and unassuming community. Visitors might be surprised to learn that the town is near the reported birthplace of Sacajawea, and was an important stop for 19th century explorers Lewis and Clark. Hospitals, schools, and even a small regional airport serve the area's dispersed population of ranchers and farmers. An array of local lodging and dining providers are happy to provide services to tourists.

Salmon is located along US 93 near the Montana border. To learn more about Salmon, select a topic of interest from the left hand menu.
