Swiftwater RV Park on the Salmon River

Swiftwater RV Park is a quiet, relaxing, top-notch, safe, and pet-friendly campground with landscaped level sites located directly on the banks of the Salmon River in central Idaho – 2 miles outside of White Bird – and just 1/2 mile from Hwy 95. Swiftwater RV Park is situated 17 miles from Hells Canyon/Pittsburg Landing with easy access to jet boating, sturgeon fishing, and whitewater rafting. Outdoor recreation abounds with everything from huckleberry picking, quad riding (thousands of acres and endless miles of roads!), mountain biking, and hunting…plus tons of open space to explore in the gospel hump wilderness area. Idaho, the Gem State, is also the “wowee” state. Every time you go around another corner, WOWEE that’s beautiful!

At an elevation of about 1,400 feet with over 300 feet of riverfront facing the Salmon River, this Idaho pet-friendly RV Park is quiet and relaxing for campers in big rigs, toy haulers, 5th wheels, & even vintage trailers or tents.

We are Veteran owned and operated and live onsite to offer terrific customer service and the cleanliness you deserve in an RV park. Our campsites offer 20/30 and/or 50 amp service *, including water and excellent WiFi, and use of our ultra-clean restrooms & showers. From beautiful back-in sites facing the Salmon River to nice-sized pull-thrus (no need to un-hook your big rig) – or for those camping in a tent – you’ll discover that Swiftwater is a true gem – whether you are looking to spend the night, a week, or a month. *See our RV Park Map for site specific amp details.

An outdoor gazebo with a stone firepit is available for all guests and sits nestled among willow trees in a corner of the park on the Salmon River’s edge. Bring your own lawn chair, or use ours. Plug in a crock pot to the electrical outlet and enjoy your dinner right here!

And the starry nights are awesome!
