Named for the nearby river, Weiser, Idaho lives up to the history of the name. Prosperous during the original pioneer days, the name Weiser came from a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804 to 1806, Peter Weiser. Many buildings in the town are on the National Register of Historic Places. The site of the annual National Oldtime Fiddlers' Contest, (each June) Weiser is also known as the "Fiddling Capital of the World."
The confluence of the Snake River and Weiser River provide much outdoor excitement. Fishing for smallmouth bass is not all that will keep you occupied. Rafting is a popular pastime for the visitors to this area, as well as witnessing the varied wildlife. Take marvelous photos of the towering ponderosa pine and Douglas firs. Don't forget hiking some long trails for an adventure and see the black lava cliffs above you.
You will find Bed & Breakfasts to accommodate you as well as motels and hotels in cities close by. Camping is available at a number of campsites next to the river.
To get to Weiser from McCall, Idaho, take ID-55 to US-95 for a little over 76 miles. Turn right on E. Park St. and you are there.
