Outdoor activities are limited only by one’s imagination: fishing, swimming, rafting, boating or gold panning are just a few. Hike along the river’s edge, often shared with curious wildlife and watch eagles and osprey soar above the river below.
Rafting: For water enthusiasts who might enjoy river rafting, our beautiful rivers provide excitement and entertainment choices for just about everyone. In the spring, the upper Moyie River is considered a prime white water challenge. While the big Kootenai, although much slower, offers all season floating through miles of roadless splendor between forested canyon walls teaming with osprey, eagles and countless forms of wildlife. For a very affordable fee, our guests may rent a raft for the day with River Rafting by Rex. They provide shuttle service by auto or truck to a launching area up river, from which you can float back down to our park. This trip is self-guided at your own leisurely pace and is considered a vacation highlight by those who have taken it.
Swimming: Visitors to Twin Rivers Canyon Resort enjoy a variety of water activities. Our private fresh water lake is a hub of activity during warm weather. There is nothing like a cool swim on a hot summer day. Our guests find the clean sandy beach and swimming dock enjoyable for family members of all ages. Shade trees and lawn encircle the lake and invite you to spread your blanket and relax between swims or while watching the kids.
Fishing: Fishing at Twin Rivers Canyon Resort and the surrounding area is a year-round activity. The Moyie and Kootenai Rivers are both renowned as premier trout streams. Lunker rainbows over 20 pounds have come out of the Kootenai with a few tackle busters exceeding 30 pounds!
Both rivers are productive for fly fisherman as well as bait and spinning anglers. Numerous small mountain lakes and streams add to the list of choices of local fishing water, several of them less than half an hour away. Species of fish include Rainbow, Cutthroat, Eastern Brook and Kokanee trout as well as Northern Whitefish, large mouth bass, perch, crappie, blue gill and tiger muskie.
Wildlife & Bird Watching: Surrounded as we are, by forest and water, Twin Rivers just naturally remains a haven for a multitude of game species as well as countless birds. A year round home to white tail deer with frequent visits by mule deer, elk, and moose, this area also supports migratory water fowl, upland game birds and hundreds of song birds.
