Sokane to Lewiston Idaho

We are travelingfrom Spokane to Lewiston in a couple of week. We will have our 2 kids with us (3 & 6) and are looking for fun activities or places to visit that are outdoorsy and/or educational.

We would also like to savce some money and stay in cabins if possible. Please pass along good and bad advise- all is helpful!

Thanks so much-

Spokane to Lewiston is about a 2.5 hour drive. You have two routes you can take, US195 via Washington, or I90&US95 via Idaho. US195 is through the Palouse (rolling hills with wheat farms), A neat state park is Steptoe State Park near Steptoe Washington on US195. Steptoe Butte is a small mountain above the terrain of the Palouse giving great views, you drive to the top. On US95 in Idaho its a quick drive over to Heyburn State Park which offers lake access, hiking trails, campgounds and cabins. Web site is …idaho.gov/parks/heyburn.aspx

Heyburn is about 45 minutes south of Coeur d' Alene and about 2 hours north of Lewiston. There are lots of outdoor things to do in Lewiston, but a unique trip would be a day trip up to Hells Canyon by jet boat. Beamers is one of the main operators, web site: www.hellscanyontours.com . Also a trip up to Spalding, Idaho just east of Lewiston to visit the Nez Perce National Historic Park Visitor's center is worth while.

Are you only interested in the Lewiston/Clarkston area? What kind of activities are you interested in and how far do you want to go from the Lewiston area? Idaho Parks and Rec. rents cabins at Three Meadows, Dworshak State Park out of Orofino.
