The site is enjoyed by visitors from all over the country for camping, world class fishing, boating, tubing, swimming, picnicking, and wildlife viewing.


This area is popular for boaters, anglers, wildlife watching, as well as for quiet relaxation. Pink House Recreation Site is home to one of the most heavily used boat launching sites upstream from Lewiston, Idaho. Guests have immediate access to the Clearwater River, home to world-renowned salmon and steelhead fisheries attracting anglers from around the world. Tubing is one of the most popular activities on the section upstream of Orofino due to the river’s mellow rapids and accessibility. With over 10 access sites along the Clearwater River to put-in and take-out, recreationists have the option to float on the river as long as they desire. 


Both pavilions have electricity, lighting, standing BBQ grills, accessible picnic tables, and face the main stem of the Clearwater River, making it the ideal location for a family get-together or a party.

The site is nestled beside the Clearwater River at an elevation of 980 feet, surrounded by scenic views of semi-arid hills, and the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. Native trees provide abundant shade throughout the site and guests can access a large sandy beach with just a short walk from the pavilions.
