This lodge is at the "end of the road" for all practical purposes. If you are looking for seclusion, and huge views, then you've arrived. Access is solid but you will want to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle in the early spring or late fall. Trailers are not advised due to the turnaround options. However, there are several large public parking areas in the area where you an offload the toys! Take advantage of this great area with "World Class Fishing" on the South Fork of the Snake River, Launch below the Palisade Dam less than a mile away. Trail rides are available just down the road as well. Not to mention there are miles of trails for ATVs in Swan Valley and the Palisades. Palisades Reservoir is a large body of water with excellent boating, fishing and great sight seeing. Swan Valley is named after the trumpeter swans that migrate through spring and fall. You will find yourself centrally located 45 minutes from Idaho Falls, 1 hour to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and 30 minutes to Teton Valley Idaho. Bring your family, bring your toys, plan your next adventure at the Ridgetop Retreat on the Palisades.
