Stanley sits at the nexus of the waters that give Idaho the nickname, “The Whitewater State”. Perched on the banks of the headwaters of the Salmon River and thirty miles from the origin of the South Fork of the Payette River, thousands of river rafters and boaters flood our streets each and every season. Stanley is the jumping off point for running through 100 miles of wilderness canyon on the world-renowned Middle Fork of the Salmon “River of No Return” and boasts the highest per capita river guide to redneck ratio in the United States. Whether you are a family on summer vacation or destination river rat, Stanley has you covered. Here you can do everything from get your feet wet on the local “Day Stretch”, with single and half day rafting and kayaking trips though Class II-IV whitewater, to embarking on a six day backcountry adventure through the largest wilderness in the lower 48 states. Impeccable hospitality and professional guiding are what we are known for, so check out the outfitters listed below and start planning your next adventure:
