UPPER LAKE: BACKPACKER'S PARADISE

The Eagle Cap area is all about taking your ‘room’ with you. Being high, it can get cold at night, so be prepared. Wilderness permits are self-issued at trailheads for no cost - the parking is another matter. You need to get a Northwest Trails parking permit. With over 50 lakes to choose from and mile after mile of beautiful river meadow parklands, your ‘ideal’ campsite is infinite and free.

Views from the campsites here at Upper Lake can either look over to Corgi Peak across the lake; over to Pete's Point rising above Mirror Lake; or down the East Lostine Valley - you can't go wrong. Water is a few feet away!

Indian Lodge Motel: Only motel in Joseph

Jospeh has three bed and breakfasts in the city limits, but this is the only plain ol' motel (16 rooms).
This is only about three blocks from my house and relatives have stayed here several times (during daughter's graduation, and then guests booked most of it for wedding).
It was originally founded by character actor Walter Brennan, who had a ranch here (his descendents still live here).

It is clean, affordable (most expensive room $52 for king bed in summer season), easy walking distance to anywhere in town, has a great view of mountains and each room has air conditioning, heat, coffee maker, cable TV and refrigerator.
Reservations recommended during summer season.

Imnaha River Inn: Rugged luxury

I have never stayed in Imnaha River Inn, but I've visited and it is truly beautiful in a rustic style, handcrafted of logs and wood with beautiful open beam ceilings.
It gets very good reviews from people who have stayed there, and the owners -- who built the place -- are great.

It is located just a couple of miles downriver from the little town of Imnaha, and could easily be included in the off the beaten path category. The setting is in a rugged canyon and the view is spectacular.
There are seven guest rooms, with themes like the "Bear Den" or the "Nez Perce Room".
They reportedly serve a super breakfast, and dinner and bagged lunches are also offered for an extra cost.
The rates are pretty reasonable, from about $65 (single) to $115. No credit cards apparently. Group rates available.
