As a side note, we stayed at Granite Lake in Clarkston. What a nice campground! One of the nicest we have seen.

Thanks for the CG info. I was curious as as to the road? Steep inclines, narrow, etc. I guess as I will be coming out of Colorado it will be no more difficult than Wolf Creek Pass etc.

The road in and out of the canyon used to be steep and windy. I understand that there is a new road that is not bad. It has been at least 40 years since I was there.

I made reservations yesterday for the State park at Lewiston during the first week in May. Let us knowvhow b it us.

I can't speak for 95 all the way from Boise, but we came south down Hwy 55 from McCall a few years back and it was a beautiful drive. Lots of curves following a river and railway, but a good wide roadway. There weren't any bad grades along it. There is a great state park in McCall named Ponderosa State Park with very good hookups if you are looking for a spot about half way.

Hwy 95 from McCall to Lewiston is more of the same, not a bad drive. Hwy 95 north of Lewiston is a bear though. There is about five miles of 7% uphill grade if you are going northbound. We were coming down the grade and there were runaway truck ramps about every 3/4 mile. It will test your grade brake.

Thanks for that info......I'll be going west at Lewiston so will miss the big grades. The State park you mentioned sounds like a good stop.
