With many long sunny days and starry nights ahead, there’s no better time to relax and recreate in the great Idaho outdoors. Here’s a list of our favorite activities for summer in Stanley.

1. A Day at Stanley Lake

This high-mountain lake is a mecca for summertime fun in Stanley. Hike on the surrounding trails, swim in the refreshing water, kick back on the shore, and maybe even find a geode.

2. Weekly Summer Activities

Our summer activities range from evening children’s programs to yoga classes and fly tying lessons on the porch. Check out the list here to find the experience that best suits you and your family!

3. Onsite Horseback Rides

Guided through the shady Salmon River Loop, guests can marvel at amazing views by horseback. From salmon jumping in the river to bald eagles flying overhead, horseback riding across the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch property will be something your family talks about for years to come. Rides start at $70/person for a 90 minute ride.

4. Whitewater Rafting

Meet your White Otter professional river guides at the bank of the Salmon River to experience the excitement of Class II and III rapids. Stop for a bite at the Sunbeam Cafe that overlooks the confluence of the Salmon River and Yankee Fork.

5. Idaho Rocky Outdoor Music 

Every Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday, we invite you to move your feet under the clear sky to the music of local Idaho bands. Gather with the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch community to make music memories.
