Kooskia Idaho is the gateway to the Clearwater and Nez Perce National Forest and the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness area. Just east of town, the Selway River and Lochsa River merge to become the Clearwater River which flows right through town. US Highway 12, the "Lewis and Clark Highway", parallels the route traveled by the famous explorers through the rugged Lochsa Canyon and offers many camp sites and picnic areas along the breathtaking beauty.
Kooskia features a variety of special events and activities. The refurbished Old Victorian Opera Theatre, built in 1912, is located in the center of town. It emulates a splendor of yesteryear with a spectacular crystal chandelier, a dessert and sarsaparilla bar, and features year round concerts as well as melodramas.
Kooskia boasts of the unlimited opportunities for the outdoor sportsmen and their families. After a date with Mother Nature, Kooskia offers a great meal, a great show, a comfortable place to rest and an all around relaxing atmosphere, with business personnel and town folks alike dedicated to making your visit a memorable one.
