We originally had reserved just a pitch-your-own-tent spot, but my husband and I wanted to try the glamping tents. We call three times in the three days preceding our arrival to see if we could switch to a glamping tent. Always got their answering machine. Left our number, but no one ever called back. Luckily, they had one available when... More

We recently returned to the Texas heat after 4 amazing days at Riverdance Lodge. Everything was wonderful. The location was beautiful, food was excellent, and the glamping tent was a great experience. But, it was the staff most of all that made our stay so memorable. They truly are committed to making sure guests feel welcome and are treated as... More

Along with three friends, I just returned home to Maryland after a fabulous, peaceful vacation at River Dance Lodge. I can't say enough about the staff, the accommodations, the food...it was all superb. The staff was so much fun that I was sad to leave them behind. Their friendliness was so genuine and their attention to detail so keen that... More

We had a wonderful time at River Dance Lodge last week! Weather was perfect, the adventures (floating, kayaking, hiking) were great, the cabin was comfortable, and the food delicious. The staff made it a truly memorable experience-especially the music under a million stars. We'd never been to Idaho before, and can't wait to come back. Thanks RDL for an awesome,... More

My husband I got married at the River Dance Lodge last weekend and it was the absolute best!!

My wife and I stayed at RDL for a week. Overall, it was an amazing experience. Coming from Phoenix in the summer, our two main goals were to get some good weather and get away from civilization - RDL made both possible. The clearwater river valley is as remote, wild, and scenic as it gets. We lost cell phone reception... More

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! "Remote, wild, and scenic" is a great description...and the flow of the nearby stream does make a great lullaby! Stay in touch, and remember River Dance Lodge (and the huckleberry pie!) when you need another unplugged vacation! More

Our family recently stayed at the River Dance Lodge in one of the big cabins on the Clearwater River in Kooksia, Idaho. It was in June 2013. On one of our floating fishing trips, the guide ran the raft into a "sweeper" another word for a tree branch extending into the water, and totally capsized the raft, sending my brother... More

I'm very sorry that you had a frightening experience on the river with us. We do take guide training very seriously and are proud of the skill of our guides. Sometimes nature throws curve balls and in this case water currents, a fallen tree and the guide's maneuvers all joined forces and caused an upset. Rafting is inherently risky, and... More

The large cabin was just perfect for our group of five, and could have fit several more people easily. The gas Franklin stove made the whole cabin cozy in no time, as the weather was cold for the first two days we were there. The hot tub was clean and enjoyed by all after a day of rafting on the...
