Hells Gate State Park is the gateway to both Idaho's Lewis and Clark country and to Hells Canyon, the deepest river gorge in North America. Shady campsites along the Snake River make comfortable base-camps for exploration of the surrounding area. Jet boat excursions into Hells Canyon leave on a regular basis from the park's docks. The Nez Perce National Historic Park is only 30 minutes away. A wide choice of restaurants and shopping are just minutes away, in nearby Lewiston Idaho.

  • This a nice little park area for water recreation and picnic activities a mere three miles south of Lewiston. It is a great early spring to late fall location for family outings our group gatherings. 
  • This is a true vision of the outdoors in Idaho, camping, fishing, swimming, gazebos with fire pit grills. You will see wildlife all around you. This is a must visit place to relax or spend quality family time together.
  • Nice state park right on the Snake River. Great camping and marina. Well kept up.
  • Beautiful park. Lots of hiking trail options. Great beach. Might be my new favorite.
  • Very noisy. Miserable lack of staff after 8pm. No camp host to deal with noisy neighbors which leaves you with the only option of calling the sheriff. Like camping in a city park with a bunch of idiots and no buffer in between.
  • Hot, dry...but lots of trails to run + hike just south of the main park entrance!
