Hells Gate State Park


How does a jet boat ride up the Snake River in one of North America's deepest canyons sound?  Or reeling in a steelhead fish, picnicking under shade trees on the banks of the river or a leisurely bike ride on the Clearwater and Snake River trail?  Hells Gate State Park has all this to offer and more.

Quiet and grassy campsites along the shores of the Snake River await campers at Hells Gate.  The park is situated at the lowest elevation in Idaho.  At just 733 feet above sea level, the long season of warm weather gives rise to Lewiston's reputation as Idaho's Banana Belt.
