Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of good rivers. If you have the time you can make this a two day trip, so go ahead and pack your sleeping bag. The Loop Creek to St.
    Joe Confluence section is one of many paddling sections in this river system. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. When you're paddling down a Bitterroot Range river like this one you always get
great scenery along the way too. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.

rafting and kayaking here in Idaho are often more challenging than in other states, so keep in mind that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners.
