We are family owned and operated and live onsite to offer terrific customer service and the cleanliness you deserve in an RV park. Each campsite offers 20/30 or 50 amp service, including water and 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.  Plus, we're a great location for family reunions and other get-togethers...we're just 3.5 hours drive from Spokane, WA in the north, or Boise, ID in the south.

Exceptional outdoor recreation in North Central Idaho abound, and in the communities along the Salmon River canyon area between White Bird and Riggins. Swiftwater RV Park is a great campground, with both RV and Tent Camping amenities, not to mention one of the best departure locations for 4-wheeling and motorbike excursions.  Besides that, motorcyclists and cyclists are always welcome at pet-friendly Swiftwater RV Park!

Swiftwater RV Park is the closest private Idaho campground to Hells Canyon and Pittsburg Landing – a popular private and commercial boat launch spot on the Snake River in the heart of Hells Canyon National Recreation Area.  The drive (FS Road 493) takes only 45 minutes from Swiftwater over a well-maintained gravel road that is full of incredible views, vistas and wildlife.

Overall Rating: 5.0

The views are breathtaking the campground is located on the bank of the Salmon River the one of the cleanest restrooms I've ever seen , very pet friendly great place to walk your dogs .


Perfect location to get to Pittsburgh Landing in Hells Canton. Relaxing location on the riverfront. The new owners were very nice and welcoming. Our dogs enjoyed the relaxed dog-friendly atmosphere as well.

I adored this place! The staff welcomed us like we were family or had always been going there. The sites were very spacious and wide and I enjoyed the grass and trees all over the place. The amenities were really nice as we got more than our necessities taken care of. There were a great array of activities to choose from that was not only fun but was really relaxing. The location was beautiful as there were so many beautiful and stunning sights all throughout the park. Overall we had a very pleasant stay here and can’t wait to get back. - Review provided by RV Park Recommendations & Reviews Facebook Group
