Arrived and camped at the Kilgore campgrounds on Thursday, took the jet boat trip through the canyon on Friday, departed from the campground on Saturday. This was a great experience, that my family and I enjoyed, very glad we did it. Would highly recommend everyone to do this at least once!

The rooms were great and had everything we needed. Upon our arrival, they had everything set up and ready to go for our stay and Jet Boat tour (about as stress free as it can get). A great home base for our river adventure. A nice area around the hotel with a little beach on the river. I highly recommend...

The room was great. Taking the shuttle to Pittsburgh Landing was awesome, got to enjoy scenery instead of watching the road. Jet boat trip was exciting, met all my expectations, even saw a bear. Crew were great. Very enjoyable.

We drove past this but took pictures of the countryside along the way! There was such a feeling of peace looking at the ranches, prairies, and open land! This is where I got out and let the wife drive! Northern Idaho was beautiful!

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...

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...

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...
