We took the boat service to the opposite side of the lake; climbed the BENCH TRAIL back to RedFish Lodge (approximately 6 miles); kayaked the lake; sat under the trees and enjoyed the fast food.

Beautiful scenery from the drive to the destination. Mountain lake with lots of amenities from camping to cabins to dining to boating and everything else in between!

Snow capped mountains, clear lake water, beautiful trees! I now understand why this area is one of the most photographed areas in Idaho.

Just south of Stanley, tiny little road about 1/2 mile back in, and Bingo.... beautiful lake and lodge. Great place to take a break, grab a snack and a drink, and just take in the experience... beautiful, and worth the stop.

We love this place! Go paste Redfish Lake Lodge & pay the extra $10 fee on the North Shore to relax & enjoy the lake. Pack a picnic & sit at the picnic benches with your towels, chairs & cold drinks. We swim out to the dock every year, it's fun, cold & refreshing once you make it to the... More

My husband and I were staying in Ketchum for 2 nights in early June 2014 and drove up to Stanley one morning and stopped here for lunch. Like a step back in time with clear views, adequate lunch choices from outside gazebo and fun people watching. We rented one of the smaller boats for an hour ($45) and were one... More

Redfish lake is a slice of heaven . . .if you go to Ketchum or Sun Valley and you don't take the hour drive north, you have seriously missed out! August is best, but try to skip Sundays . . .way too crowded. Best time is during the week . . . you won't regret it!

A Sawtooth summer is not complete without at least one afternoon spent lounging on the grass at Redfish Lake. The atmosphere is reminiscent of lake resorts in the 1960s, when I was a kid. The little store has all the kitchy stuff that one would expect, which makes it fun, even if you don't buy anything. Have a burger and... More

Hiked along the lake and got great pictures. Beautiful mountain backdrop! Very refreshing and all easy to access. Did the fishhook trail, which was nice and easy if you want that.
