Orofino has something for everyone year-round. This beautiful mountainous country is full of crystal clear rivers, brooks and lakes.
Surrounded by wilderness areas on three sides, this land is definitely for those who desire the great outdoors. Located on the North Fork of the Clearwater River, Dworshak Dam created a 53 mile reservoir. A wonderful variety of recreational opportunities, such as camping, sailing, canoeing, water-skiing, fishing and hunting await visitors to the reservoir. Two full-service campgrounds are available at Dent Acres Recreation Area and Dworshak State Park.
Enjoy a meal in town, spend a restful evening in a nice motel, hotel, bed and breakfast or at a close campground. There are also campgrounds at Canyon Creek and Grandad. Over 100 mini-camps are scattered along the shore to provide camping or day-use sites for boaters. There are three boat ramps located near the dam and four additional ramps located further upstream. Big Eddy Recreation Area, near the dam, provides a wonderful setting for picnics and swimming. A 96-slip marina and boat fueling facilities are also located at Big Eddy. While visiting, join us during our annual Lumberjack Days.
