My family just returned from a 7 day stay at RDL. We stayed in the Naturalist cabin and opted for the all inclusive package (meals and 3 guided activities). I cannot tell you how much we really love this place. My kids (ages 7 and 9) say this was better than Disney World!!! We have decided to try and go... More

River Dance Lodge Modern, sturdy yet somewhat rustic cabins (or glamping tents!) overlooking the Middle Fork of the Clearwater River. Has all the amenities you need and lacks those things you come here to get away from - like TV, internet (available in lodge/restaurant), or telephone. Yep, that's right, no cellular service here! The cabin has a small fridge, microwave,... More

I stayed at the River Dance Lodge as part of a wedding weekend that was held at the lodge as well. It is not only beautiful, situated directly across from the Clearwater River, but the accommodations were first rate, and the service was absolutely phenomenal!!

Our family enjoyed every aspect of the River Dance Lodge! The food was amazing, the scenery and outdoor opportunities even better, and the cabins were very clean and comfy. The staff could not have been more helpful and accommodated our every request. It was the perfect place for our family of five - a great vacation filled with outdoor fun!

My partner surprised me with a glamping getaway for my birthday. It was the first time for us both and we were more than happy with our accommodations. The days started out with a hot breakfast and ended with an always amazing 4 course dinner served by the friendliest people we have ever met. The beds were extremely comfortable and... More

Family Vacation on the Lochsa was just what was needed. We rented 3 cabins to accomodate our groups and moved our party between them. They were clean and all had hair dryers, tubs for soaking if you are the bubble-bath type, microwaves, coffee pot with coffee provided and basics for cooking. The hottubs kept the knots down from constant hiking... More

These cabins are well built and details are in place. I thought our hot tub was a little cool, but my husband thought it was just right, so it proves you can't please everyone. The dinner in the restaurant was just fine. It was so nice not to drive back into town. We stayed in the Naturalist cabin at the... More

My partner and I stayed in a glamping tent a few weeks ago. First time for both of us and definitely not the last. Very comfortable beds, ample space, excellent screen coverage, wood stove and bathtub on the balcony contributed to a worthwhile experience and place we looked forward to after returning from river rafting for the day for two...

What did we love about traditional camping at River Dance "Lodge"? 1) It was on the cross-country (TransAm) bicycle tour route, 2) Shade, a clean picnic table, and an adjacent well-maintained, clean, composting toilet (in addition to the flush toilets and showers behind the lodge building), 3) OUTSTANDING food, service, and microbrews on tap (hard to find in Idaho) at...

River Dance Lodge offers along with their suite of log cabins, several canvas cabins and three flat, grassy, open "single" camp sites and a "group" site with several mature shade trees on their property.
