The Pierce-Weippe Chamber of Commerce in North Central Idaho invites you to experience all that our area has to offer. The journey along Idaho's Highway 11 Gold Rush Historic Byway takes you from the crossing of the Clearwater River at Highway 12 in Greer, through the rolling wheat fields and camas prairies of Fraser and Weippe, into the wooded Gateway to the Clearwater National Forest Backcountry of Pierce.
The scenery is breathtaking, with numerous hills, mountains, forests, valleys and rivers to delight any photographer. There are plenty of historic sites to experience, including the site where the starving Lewis and Clark Corp of Discovery met the Nez Perce Indians on the Camas prairie after crossing the Bitterroot Mountains. In addition, 10 miles north, you can visit the oldest town in Idaho - Pierce, a gold rush town which is home to the oldest courthouse in the state. For the outdoor enthusiasts, the area offers everything you could desire: big game hunting, fishing, hiking, ATV trails, downhill and cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and camping.
So, take a moment to explore our site to view the numerous opportunities available. After that, drop us a line and we will mail you visitor information, which includes maps and sources for food and lodging during your stay.
