You can visit historic gold camps and stage stops, fish in pristine streams and rivers, camp beside mountain lakes, and marvel at the wide variety of wildlife. Just a few of the recreational activities available near Elk City include hiking, mountain biking, fishing, camping, skiing and snowmobiling. Trout fishing is spectacular in the South Fork of the Clearwater, the Red River, Crooked River, Meadow Creek, American River and many back country lakes in the wilderness area.

Elk City Weather & Climate

North Central Idaho has a four-season climate. Located within the northern latitude, Idaho's Northern Panhandle has summer days that are long and sunny, with just enough rain to keep things very green and pretty. Temperatures can range from very warm in the summer to very cold in the winter. The major mountain ranges accumulate a deep snow cover in the winter. In spring, the melting snow pack provides irrigation water for the lower regions of the state. The major source of moisture for northern Idaho is the Pacific Ocean, although in summer there are some exceptions when moisture-laden air is brought in from the south.
