Moyie Springs, Idaho

Boundary County, Idaho

Moyie Springs is located east of Bonners Ferry on US Highway 2, near the confluence of the Moyie and Kootenai Rivers in beautiful northern Idaho. This is an area well-known for its timber products and its recreational possibilities. The first Europeans in the area were traveling in company with David Thompson in 1808. They were British fur trappers and explorers, although the word "Moyie" supposedly comes from a corruption of the French word "mouillé" meaning "wet" or "damp."

The Moyie River is one of Idaho's hidden gems, seeing a lot of whitewater rafting during May and June every year. Just be careful you don't get too far south on the river and end up on top of Moyie Falls...
