6 of the Most Luxurious Campgrounds in the Northwest

"While the custom log cabins and canvas glamping tents at River Dance Lodge don’t have TVs or WiFi, you won’t miss either. That’s because the accommodations at Idaho’s “outdoor adventure resort” are handcrafted with the finest natural materials that blend seamlessly into their natural setting. They feature well-equipped kitchens, and the larger log cabins have gas fireplaces and hot tubs. The glamping tents have king-sized pillow-top beds, wood-burning fireplaces and clawfoot soaking tubs. Off-site activities include fly-fishing, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking and whitewater rafting in three local rivers."

Float on: Adventure awaits during all-women’s whitewater rafting trip

"But the river is our focus. We slice through Green Canyon, Cougar Canyon and Blue Canyon on the Lower Salmon, hitting rapids with names like Snowhole, Checkerboard, Bodacious Bounce, Sluice Box and The Slide. Much of area we see was once inhabited by tribes including the Nez Perce. This river provided food and life for them; today it’s one of the largest rivers in the continental United States without a dam on its mainstem. It flows for 425 miles through grassy mountains and charcoal-colored cliff walls in Idaho, dropping 7,000 feet as it goes."

Rogue Luxury – My Lodge to Lodge Rogue River Rafting Trip Experience

Quiltripping November, 2019

"Luxury comes in many forms. There is the obvious five star hotel with concierge service and private infinity pool type of luxury. But for me, a more important form of luxury is the ability to easily experience the solitude of pristine, unspoiled wilderness for three days. A lodge to lodge Rogue River rafting trip gave me that experience with the added comfort of sleeping in a bed and hot showers at the end of each day, along with good home cooked meals and fine local Oregon wines. Now that is luxury indeed." - Rosemarie Palmer-Sungail
