1. River Dance Lodge, Central Idaho

A fantastic, unforgettable family vacation doesn’t mean you have to mortgage the house.

Nothing simplifies vacation planning like an all-inclusive family getaway, and River Dance Lodge is the place to go for a unique, affordable encounter with nature.

Located along the Clearwater River in central Idaho's mountain wilderness, every activity is included in one price—your cabin stay, your meals, and the guided activities.

Choose a new adventure each day: horseback riding or rafting, a float trip or fly-fishing, hiking or biking.

At night there are songs around the campfire and dark skies perfect for stargazing while you soak in the hot tub on your cabin's deck.

And your family’s break from civilization will be complete … there's no cell-phone service here, and Internet access is limited to the cafe.
