Frank Church Wilderness Lodge



Knipe Land Company

Property Description

Frank Church Wilderness Lodge is a truly unique property in central Idaho. This magnificent property consists of 73± acres inside the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. The property is located about 30 miles from Riggins, Idaho, and about 50 miles from McCall, Idaho. The land is accessible only from McCall.


The listing includes a large lodge (4 stories) and garage (3 stories) with upstairs apartments (42,000 total sq ft). These have been partially constructed with wood on concrete and steel according to rigorous commercial codes. Additionally, there are wood-frame structures to support workers and visitors during the construction phase (approx. 10,000 sq ft).

The new construction has a basement, exterior walls, interior floors, and roof. Metal roofing was installed on the garage building and 1/3 of the main lodge before construction was halted in October 2012.

With site work, design, foundation, basement, exterior walls, and 98% of roofs complete, over $22,000,000 has been spent on the project to date.

This lodge is a special place for a person or group with the resources to maintain the property, and make whatever improvements or degree of completion desired. Only serious, qualified buyers will be entertained, and an extensive summary of relevant property information is available, as well an equipment and property inventory.


Buyers seeking to visit the site must do so at their own expense. There are acceptable, safe helicopter landing sites. A summer visit via 4-wheeler from McCall, Idaho typically requires 3-4 hours each way in and out; i.e. a full day of visit time. A winter visit requires advance scheduling and support from locals to assist in transportation and site prep before each visit. Pre-qualified buyers who have studied all information materials may contact the broker to schedule a showing.
