click here for a print-friendly version of this pageWelcome to Clarkston, Gateway to Hells Canyon! It is our hope that during your stay with us, be it overnight or over a lifetime, you will create many fond memories and become a part of our history.

We are proud to be recognized as a region of outstanding beauty and historical significance. The twin cities of Clarkston, Washington and Lewiston, Idaho were named in honor of the famous explorers, William Clark and Meriwether Lewis from the Corps of Discovery Lewis and Clark Expedition. As they led the Corps of Discovery through our area in 1805 they were provided much needed assistance from the Nez Perce Indians in the region.

Located at the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater Rivers, surrounded by gentle rolling hills, the Lewis-Clark Valley is located 465 river miles from the Pacific Ocean and is at the head of the navigation system of the Columbia/Snake River. The area is often referred to as the "Banana Belt" due to the area's low elevation (731 feet above sea level). Year-round warm weather and mild winters allow golfing all year. You can choose from an array of activities such as water skiing, sailing, fishing, swimming, walking or riding along miles of paved levee pathways, or camping at a riverside park.
