Camp Based Hunts & Rates

NIM Cliff camp pictures 010

Our camps are located in Idaho's big game unit 4 within the Coeur 'd alene National Forest.  We have drive in camps where we conduct guided hunts and pack in drop camps available for unguided hunts. The camps consist of wall tents with indoor/outdoor carpet floor, wood stove, cots, a table, a chair and a propane lantern.

Guided Hunts- On guided hunts meals and beverages are provided.  The camp staff will prepare the meals as well as stock your tent with firewood, fire starter and any other necessities such as propane bottles for the lanterns.  These hunts are basically booked by the guide and tent, when you book a hunt you are booking a guide and a tent, if you book as a single hunter you have your own guide and your own tent, if you choose to book as a pair with another hunter or include a non hunting guest then you share your tent and your guide with your partner(s).  The tents sleep 2 very comfortably and 3 if necessary but there is a limit of 3 per hunt and only 2 may hunt with a guide at any given time.  For groups of more than 3 people multiple hunts may be booked during the same time period, subject to availability.

There is  no cell phone service from any of our camps but you can drive to a place where you can get a signal if necessary in an urgent situation or emergency, Verizon Wireless customers get the best signal, all other carriers service varies depending on carrier.  Our standard hunt takes 7 days including the day of arrival and the day of departure.  For spring bear hunts you will be given driving directions to camp via I-90 or Highway 200 depending on your direction of approach.  For all other hunts you will need to come to Clark Fork, Idaho.  From there you will be driven or led in to camp that day and begin your hunt on the following day.  You will also be driven or escorted out from camp on the day after your hunt is over if necessary.

Trip Booking Policy
Our booking policy is on a first paid first served basis. A deposit in the above outlined amount is required to reserve dates. Since deposits are for specific dates and on a first paid basis we regret that refunds cannot be made however you may reschedule your hunt for different dates one time only, subject to availability. If you need to reschedule your hunt a 10% rescheduling fee will be assessed to your deposit already paid and the remaining credit will be applied to your new hunt.
Upon receipt of your deposit a letter of confirmation, liability release form, questionnaire, suggested equipment list, invoice for balance due and receipt for deposit will be mailed to you.
We recommend that you also send your license and tag fees with your questionnaire and liability release form. This will minimize leg work that needs to be done once you arrive and guarantee that you get desired tags before the sales quotas for nonresident deer & elk tags is met.

THE NEAREST AIRPORT IS SPOKANE WASHINGTON (about 2 ½ hours drive from the lodge).
Balance of fees + 6% sales tax and a signed liability release form are due before hunting begins. If paying by check please send 30 days prior to arrival, fees are not considered paid until a check clears.
