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.

Took the drive to Redfish while @ Sun Valley for a few days! The Lodge is a 'hidden getaway' to yesteryear, complete with Adirondack chairs on the porch overlooking the lake. We took the hour long boat cruise so that we could see the lake at it's best! Day would not be complete without ice cream cones, and a couple... More

Drove from Ketchum up to Stanley, Idaho and took the side road into Redfish Lake. What a charming spot with lots of activities. Would consider staying and playing longer.

This wonderful lake lodge reminds me of something out of the 50's with big chairs in the front for people watching. I have never stayed in the cabins or the lodge. The cabins look dark and I hear the lodge rooms share baths, not for me. I prefer to stay in Stanley, a little north at the Valley Creek. They... More

The scenery is excellent. But the noise from boats, the roads and lots of children with loud toys made us regret our stop here. This is a fun family place for those who have lots of toys and trucks with big engines. Campers who want peaceful serenity beware!

The Redfish Lake area is nothing short of spectacular with crystal clear water (albeit it's usually eye popping cold), stunning snow capped mountains and much to do. If you're going to be in the Sun Valley area, it's worth the hour drive. Be aware that on weekends, yes, it can have the summer crowds, but even they can't take away... More
