Did you know?
Riggins, located in the heart of Idaho and named after Postmaster Dick Riggins in the early 1900’s, is a small town )pop. 443) nestled at 1800 feet elevation in the Salmon River Canyon next to the Salmon River. It is situated along Highway 95, the only north-south highway in Idaho, running from Canada to Mexico. The Salmon River is one of a few free-flowing rivers remaining in North America.
Originally named “Gouge-Eye” because a gambler got his eye put out in a poker game, Riggins has seen many colorful changes. Riggins began as a ranching, mining and logging town, but when the town’s lumber mill burned down in 1982, the ever-growing tourist and recreational industry became Riggins’ primary source of revenue.
Visitors can enjoy such sights as the Seven Devils Mountains, Hell’s Canyon and the Salmon River as well as an array of many beautiful wildlife, flora and geological varieties.
Many popular activities include whitewater rafting, jet-boating, hunting for deer elk, cougar, bear, chukar, wild turkey, moose, grouse and bighorn sheep; fishing, most notably for Bass, Steelhead and Chinook Salmon.
Riggins is well-known for a few lively events including the annual jet boat races occurring the third weekend in April, and the Riggins Rodeo during the first full weekend of May. June features the Whitewater blowout, inviting whitewater enthusiasts to experience the Slamon River on a guided rafting trip. Our Fourth of July celebration is a real blast! Hot Summer Nights heats up the last week of July, including a tantalizing talent show.
