Fabulous trip. Boat captan very good and knowledgeable. Trip first class. Our main trip was on the paddle wheel boat with America West on the Columbia & Snake Rivers. The whole trip was fantastic. I highly recommend both trips. On the paddle wheel trip the staff was extremely helpful, courteous, & knowledgeable. Food great, cabins clean & lectures excellent.

The Killgores are a respected feature of the Whitebird/Salmon/Snake area. I was hoping for a little more enthusiasm from Kurt. However, the trip was very routine, probably due in part to the low flow of the Snake this year (a poorly kept 'secret' by the trade (raft & Jet) for both Salmon and Snake). There was very little history of... More

I met Kurt Killgore at Pittsburg Landing, I had just floated Hells Canyon and I had left some important personal property at a camp upstream. I enlisted his help to stop during his jet boat tour and retrieve these items at a camp from days before. I was able to get the property back the next day, his eagerness to... More

It's basic RV camping, but all you need-- electric and water, restroom (1!) is across the "street" and shared with the 4-5 cabins. Big advantage is you are ready for the boat tour the next morning. The Wi-Fi is actually better than the last two KOA's! Beautiful spot.

The jet boat trip down the Snake River in Hells Canyon was really fun. It takes a full 45 minutes to drive from the lodge to Pittsburg landing in the canyon. Don't be late! We stopped a few times as we headed toward the dam, saw some fire in the Oregon hills, rode through some fun rapids and then stopped... More

We went on the full day jet boat ride last weekend and had a amazing day out in the canyon. The hosts were excellent and in comparison with other jet boats we saw in the canyon that day, it did seem like Kilgore boat and tour was much better quality. The reception in the office was very friendly and got... More

Our museum's travel group took the Wild River Tour with Kurt and Homer May 22nd. Most of our 27 participants were in their 70's and 80's and...THEY LOVED IT! Several people told me it was one of their life's dreams fulfilled! Killgore Adventures treated us with generous amounts of TLC and were a joy to work with. The lunch was... More

The ride stages out of the Killgore Resort and its all three days of the Memorial Day weekend, usually there will be hundreds of riders and all lodging will be totally full in the vicinity. The killgore's are fantastic people and there lodging facilities are outstanding-perfect. The... More

Let me first say that you should also read reviews under Killgore Adventures because there are more reviews there and they are one and the same! This river adventure and fishing operation is run by a local family (The Killgores) who have a small motel and RV park along a sandy piece of the Salmon River. It is a beautiful... More
