We are renting the entire Swiftwater RV site next to the bridge over the Salmon River
just off the old Hwy 95 a mile south of White Bird, ID. Basically the entire grove of
shade trees to the right of the bridge in the photo above (looking logically East).
The RV campground is at about 1,452' elevation directly on the shore of the Salmon River.
Particularly good news is that there are NO mosquitos!
Also, the Sliver Dollar Bar (a mile away) is very rustic, and has name brand bourbon
for $2.25 a glass (as of summer, 2011). BTDT. Recommended.
some scouting photos for your perusal.
Look for the signs just a
couple hundred meters both north and south of mile marker 222 on the new Hwy 95.
There is a map page
with photos and better directions, distances, and location-aid photos.
Or you can just plug in the coordinates from the page header above into your GPS
or into Google Maps.
There are two very nice bathrooms in the main building,
each with shower, plus 2 coin-operated washers, 2
coin-operated driers, a freezer (which we can use part of)
and an old fashioned coin-operated phone. There is no cell phone
service at the site. There is, however, WiFi, possibly for the first time at a Gather,
and there is a small wall-mounted TV near the dryers.
The town of White Bird (Pop. 150) has a very small general store, two bars, two restaurants,
and a tiny liquor store.
Between White Bird and the RV park is Hoots, a restaurant/motel/gas station with 3 grades
of gasoline and one of diesel.
We also have a list of
nearby motels, if you'd rather credit-card camp...
There are 22 RV posts with 110v power, no problems with CPAP machines!
A nice 1/2 day rafting trip
down the Salmon River
is in the works for Friday. The cost will be $70 per person
(not included in your regular registration fee).
For details (including how to pay for your spot) see the end of the
on or about May 1st.
We do have a description
of the adventure
Also for Friday we're going pistol shooting up on a bluff just 15 min. from camp.
The following folks have expressed interest: bjet, JC, SSJoanne, Brett, HMarc,
Wanda, Gooz, Art, Becky, Randall, txd.
Saturday we're setting up a Sporting Clay round at Little Canyon. Presumably
100 targets for those up for it, or small multiples of 25 for those not
quite so enthusiastic. So far we have: Gooz, HMarc, Carl, Ed H., Rolf, Brett,
| General emergency
| Syringa General Hospital
| Idaho County Sheriff
| Lewis County Sheriff
The Gather can't happen without volunteers
, please consider
offering to help in some capacity. There is
a page here
listing the sub-bosses for each major
area of responsibility. Many of them need help. Please offer.
PayPal allows us 60 days to refund someone's
payment without any charge,
thus our traditional delay in opening registration.
The Signup List
There's a list of who's signed up
already — though it may not be 100% up-to-date...
