Salmon River Resort

is located right on the lower Salmon River at the mouth of White Bird Creek, near White Bird, ID. We offer full service RV sites, tent camping, motel rooms and cabin rental at the heart of North Central Idaho near Hells Canyon. The campground has been in business since the 1960s when the late Heather Killgore moved here and opened the lodging accomodations and ran a successful fishing tackle shop and store on the property. In the beginning we were called Chief White Bird motel, then later the name changed to Waterfront RV Park and Motel while still being operated by Les and Heather Killgore.  Around 2000 Heather and Les started a jet boat tour company and operated the campground as part of their successful adventure business offering lodging to their customers. Heather passed on in 2018 and Les and Heather entrusted their beloved campground to daughter Kortney Killgore Smith who has changed the name to Salmon River Resort and plans to run and operate the place honoring her mothers legacy.
