Located 10 miles west of Clarkston Washington off highway 12. Sitting high on a hill this location has outstanding views with deer, turkeys and other wildlife. Dozen fruit trees and happy to share the bounty when in season. Lewis Clark Valley is called the Banana Belt due to the mild winter weather. but can be warm in the summer months. This River View guest location is minutes from town, yet worlds apart. Quiet peaceful location with tremendous views of the Snake river and surrounding canyons. Not the easiest location to access for larger vehicles but easily suitable for Class B and C RV's or smaller trailers w/4WD pull rig. There has been numerous trucks trailers and RVs up this road without problems. If you are unskilled or hesitant, please check road condition before driving in your RV. Suggested Local Attractions:Clarkston is the gateway to Hell's canyon, the deepest canyon in the lower 48. There are a couple of winery's in the area and plenty of restaurants in town. Miles of bicycle paths along the Snake and Clearwater rivers with parks throughout the area. Dworshak dam is 50 miles away in Orofino and is open for viewing. Good fishing in the areas rivers and reservoirs. For motorcycle riders fun curvy roads in all directions. Ie; Spiral highway, Rattlesnake grade (to Oregon), Asotin grade, Wawawi grade and US 12 to Montana (99 miles of curves) for starters.

    What an amazing location and amazing host. There property is high up on the hillss above the Snake River at a bend in the river giving you amazing views in a few directions. Gary met me as I made it up their drive (its steep as they described) and directed me to the area where I could park for the evening. I settled in for the evening and as another guest wrote I broke out a book and sat outside. Thank you for being a my Host.

    We stayed two years ago, and I see that I failed to leave a review. This was a beautiful spot up on a hill. Thanks for letting us stay!

    Terrific view, great host, plenty of parking space... the only drawback is the narrow paved one-lane no-shoulder mile to get to the driveway the host mentions. Big rigs would need to be brave! No turkeys showed up but I did watch a fat skunk waddle in for an early morning breakfast on the fallen apples. The views of the Snake River are stupendous and were made more exciting by 3 helicopters dipping water from the river to carry to a nearby wildfire...likely not the entertainment Gary intended but fascinating.

    Host is super nice! The property had amazing views. We just could not get up the driveway. The driveway was washed out in several areas and too soft for our front wheel drive Winnebago Trend. Note one of our tanks was 2/3 full so that did not help. I think if the driveway was dry, and hard with no gulls, plus if our tanks were empty, we would have had a better chance to stay up at paradise!!!
