“Memorable, Beautiful, Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

My daughter and I joined a dozen of her classmates and parents for a four-day rafting trip hosted by Three Rivers. I can't say enough about how wonderful the experience was. Aside from the fact that the Three Rivers area of Idaho is stunning in it's beauty and worth the trip alone, the family-run resort offered just the right amount of balance between "roughing it" and "pampering" to make the trip one of those vacations that actually leave you feeling refreshed instead of exhausted. The Smith family, owners of the resort, and the guides they employ (I hesitate to use the word "employ" since these people seem like they LOVE their work so much that they would do it for nothing rather than miss a weekend on the river) are some of the most friendly I have met. They are professional, intelligent and expert, all while being down-to-earth and respectful of each and every visitor. The food was terrific and the lemon bars to die for!

The Lower Salmon is wild and beautiful, flanked by steep cliffs and towering peaks. Scattered along its length are pristine white sand beaches that make for top-notch camps. The whitewater is challenging, fun, and keeps on coming. Three Rivers Rafting of Lowell, Idaho, adds incredible guides, great food, and just the right equipment for a memorable foray into the wilderness. Liam and Allison provided mountains of knowledge and expertise on the river, from their whitewater skills, to fluency with historical and natural history. They amazed all of us with their culinary skill, serving up mountains of fabulous food. Camps were created to facilitate space for those who chose quiet solitude as well as those wanting more active and communal pursuits. Although I've participated in a number of extended river trips, this was my first on the Lower Salmon. The river provides an incomparable setting, Three Rivers Rafting makes it a truly sublime experience. I'll be back!

Room Tip: The beaches on the Lower Salmon are incomparable and the night sky will lull you into a fabulous nig...

Cross another item off my bucket list. After procrastinating for 44 years, I finally white water rafted. The experience was unbelieveable. Spectacular surroundings, experienced & friendly guides (thanks, Mike, Ryan & Steve) and the food was delicious. Camping under the stars, white water rafting with my daughter in one of the most beautiful places on earth. It doesn't get any better. Would definitely do it again.

Not sure how anyone, in good conscience, can click anything less than 5 stars for this place. My girlfriend and I flew in to Missoula and made the drive on Rte 12 to Lowell and Three Rivers Resort. What an incredibly beautiful drive and destination! Three Rivers -- Great place to stay, go rafting, sit by the most beautiful river(s) you could ask for, have a campfire, drive up to Selway Falls and watch the salmon climb the rapids, hike up to the Fire Lookout and down to some mountain lakes, and go to the bar and grill and have a few Grim Reapers (thanks, Carly!) and a perfectly cooked burger (thanks, Lawrence!). The one thing we didn't fit in was grabbing some inner tubes and floating down the river. That's what the next trip is for! We took aa day trip and rafted down the Lochsa with a talented and entertaining guide -- we had a blast! Next time, we'll do a multi-day trip on the river!! Back at the resort, the Smith family (as several reviewers have noted) are the nicest, friendliest people, and they (along with their staff) do everything they can to make your stay as perfect as it can be. Go!

Room Tip: We stayed in a cabin on the river, with the sound of the river singing us to sleep!!

First off, the back road from the east is a sports car paradise. The road is recently paced and they did a great job. Continuing west from the resort they are still paving so in a year or so it should be a fantastic over the hills and through the woods drive. Driving the road can make you a little tired, so when I passed these quaint cabins nestled next to the river it took me only a few moments to find the next turnaround and head back for the night.
Luckily they had a riverfront cabin, number 10, available for the night. The price was completely reasonable at around $100.00 (mid-week). The cabin was clean and tidy. The bed had seen better days and could use replacement. But, hey, this is a cabin alongside a rushing river! They provide soap but no shampoo.
Since this is base camp for their river rafting business, which attracts groups both on the cabins and the camping areas, you might experience some loud neighbors frolicking late into the night as I did. But it is all good, because that is just the type of place this is. If I could have stayed longer I would have gone rafting, and who knows I might have joined the in the party myself!

Lowell is off the beaten path, but at a great spot for fishing and rafting and vacationing with kids. Our cabin was basic and very small, but clean. The cabin could use some updating including new mattresses (ours was way too soft). Visiting in November, all services in the area were closed, but we were warned in advance and were prepared.

This was a fine place to stay, room for kids to play. However the pool was murky and the bathrooms were dirty and full of cobwebs. A little more effort in cleaning would make this a great place. After a few visits to the pool we decided to swim in the river which we much preferred.

Be prepared for lots of bikers as the 99 curvy miles are a big draw. Definitely worth it if you need a place to crash.
