River Adventures Inc Riggins Idaho - Sport Fishing, Jet Boat Tours, Drift Boats, & Whitewater Rafting.

Directions to Vinegar Creek

Once in the town of Riggins, head east crossing the “Mill Bridge” on the Main or Big Salmon River Road. The famed Riggins Rodeo fairgrounds will be on your right side after the bridge. About a mile after crossing the Mill Bridge, the Main Salmon River will be on your left side. The road is narrow in areas so if you come to another vehicle, one of you will need to pull over and let the other by. The road is paved for about 12 miles and then is a maintained dirt road the rest of the way. Be aware of rocks and wildlife in the road. Your total mileage to the ramp from the Mill Bridge is 26 miles. GIVE YOURSELF ABOUT AN HOUR TO REACH VINEGAR CREEK BOAT RAMP from the City of Riggins!

You will cross the Lake Creek Bridge, drive by the Spring Bar boat ramp and cross the Manning Bridge on your way. You will know you are at the boat ramp because you cannot go any further--it is the end of the road. You will see a parking lot with boats and other vehicles. Also, look for a sign that says “Vinegar Creek Boat Ramp” and also a drop box where your $4 user fee can be placed. Make checks out to the US Forest Service.

Have Fun!!

What to Bring:

  • Lunch & Beverages
  • Fishing License for those who want to fish (if it is pre-planned)
  • Swimsuit and/or light jacket (depending on the weather)
  • Sunscreen
  • Camera

We always hope for good weather, but it can change very fast so be prepared for good and bad!
