Along its miles of broad banks you'll find camping and picnicking spots to suit everyone and in the warmer months the river is a popular venue for water craft of almost every description. This is...

Travel down the St. Joe River from Coeur d'Alene. It takes awhile unless you have a fast boat but it is a beautiful, lazy, quiet river and worth the time.

visiting this area is like you are going to another place in time. We saw all kinds of animals (bears, fox, eagles, other birds, etc.) and the landscape is absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth a trip to visit!

Very nice, lots of sun and seemingly happy people. Easy launch from Heyburn state park. $5.00 fee. Cruised up the St. Joe in a pontoon boat. A few no wake areas, but county park up river west of St Maries was a nice tie=up, with playground, restrooms, and picnic area. Safe to swim, no wake zone. Saw several birds of... More

The St Joe River is a nice place to camp. If you like to float the river is fun to be on. In some areas around St Joe there are great trails for ATV'ing.

A very nice slow moving river that traverses for miles across northern Idaho. The water is exceptionally clear. Lots of fly fishermen and women.
