Kamiah, Idaho nestles on the banks of the beautiful Clearwater River in a valley surrounded by scenic foothills. Here the heritage of the past meets the challenge of tomorrow, and the gateway opens to the multitude of recreational opportunities. Its forward-looking people are meeting and absorbing the problems and challenges of the modern world.
Kamiah lies not far from the great primitive area of Idaho where big game hunting is at its best. The nation's largest elk herd is located not far from here, and deer, bear, mountain lion, pheasant and grouse are plentiful. Special hunts for moose and mountain goat are drawn by lot by the Idaho Fish and Game Department.
Kamiah lies along the Lewis and Clark Highway (U.S. Highway 12), which is the shortest route from the Midwest to the Pacific Coast. It is also the longest highway within a national forest in the nation and opens the opportunity to enjoy sightseeing along the beautiful Lochsa and Clearwater Rivers where mountain goats, elk, deer and other wild animals can frequently be spotted.
