Lewis and Clark traveled through this area during their journey to discover an inland waterway to the Pacific Ocean. The Lewis and Clark Discovery Center is located in Hells Gate State Park featuring indoor and outdoor displays and a film describing the journey of Lewis and Clark through Idaho.  The Center is a two acre outdoor interpretive plaza on the banks of the Snake River with a beautiful moving stream with sculptures by artist Rip Caswell. While you’re at the center, don’t miss the 32-minute movie called “From the mountains to the sea: Lewis and Clark in Idaho” and be sure to stop by the Lewis and Clark gift shop.
