This family vacation included Grandma, Grandpa, my husband, 5 year old son and me. A few friends joined us on the boat and the smiles were endless. everyone was pleased with the accommodations. Over all it was better than we expected and we expected it to be good. I felt more like a new friend than a customer.
I have always wanted to get up the Salmon River into the middle of Idaho's beautiful backcountry. I was ecstatic when my parents invited me and my family to take a 3 day , 2 night trip up the Salmon River with some friends of theirs. Operators Buck, Joni and son Dax Dewey are awesome to work with and are very accommodating to whatever your needs are. We got to stay in one of the 4 bed cabins (3 Twin and 1 Queen) with 3/4 bathroom, which worked perfectly for our family of 4. These cabins are beautifully decorated and the beds were firm but comfortable. If you want a better idea of where they are located just look at where the South Fork of the Salmon River and the Main Salmon meet and they are right there. If you love the outdoors and would like to see a taste of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness the EASY WAY, get ahold of the Dewey's at Mackay Bar Outfitters and Guest Ranch. We will definitely be doing this trip again in the future.…
We boated up the Salmon river with 28 people in 3 boats and stayed at Mackay Bar for two nights. Buck and Joni have done a wonderful job of updating the cabins and the main lodge was beautiful as well. The food was delicious and generous portions. Their staff was amazing and they are the best hosts. They always took time to visit with us and answer questions about the area. Would highly recommend staying here and we'll be back next year!
Loved every minute we spent at Mackay Bar! We will be back for sure!!! The hospitality was superb, the food great, and the wine was yummy. The best part was the company. Learning more about Idaho history and the experiences of people who lived and died on the river was so special. I'm going to tell all my friends they need to check this place out!
Our group of ten people enjoyed every minute of our jet boat ride with Buck Dewy on the main Salmon. Mackay Bar Outfitters Are a very experienced and knowledgeable Operation. The Quest Ranch House is clean and tastefully decorated. Highly recommend people to go and experience the beautiful views offered From a jet boat operated by the Dewy’s at Mackay Bar Outfitters.
