The South Fork Lodge is "fintastic" in that it offers superb fishing coupled with superb accommodations. The fishing is done mostly on drift boats through scenic canyons. The river has plenty of side branches which gives the angler privacy and a ton of banks to work to lob large dry flies to hungry and willing trout. The guides know the... More

I just returned from my second visit at the South Fork Lodge in Swan Valley, ID and it was terrific. The lodge is very beautiful and is situated right on the Snake River with spectacular views. The rooms are large and comfortable with vaulted ceilings, exposed wood beams all with a rustic feel. The service and food are first rate.... More

I work in the fly fishing travel business and have stayed at many 3-5 star fishing lodges and fished with many outfitters in my days. I also was a guide in that area for 5 summers. With no hesitation, the South Fork Lodge is one of the best places to fish and stay I have ever experienced. The lodge is... More

We have attempted to visit the restaurant at South Fork for our Anniversary every year since I learned it existed - it has never disappointed. We were delighted to learn that they were now open year round. The view, the atmosphere, the service - everything was fabulous; they treated us like royalty. The dinner offerings are always unique and delicious.... More

We stopped and could tell that This Was The Place --- only to find that a private party had rented out the entire facility for the weekend and so... More
