My husband and I stayed in the Lake Cabin Suite #19 and liked the spaciousness of it, including a roomy front porch. However, the stale smell of urine in the unheated bathroom was so strong that it was nauseating. We also spent one night in Rustic cabin #4. I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but by morning...

I had been here about 9 years ago with my son, and loved it for its little beach, great view, and boat rentals. This time, my husband and I went late summer, and it was just the same...if not even more well cared for. Very relaxing. I could sit in the chairs by the lodge and read for hours.

This is a beautiful area with a lot of history. There is music on the lawn at night with families of all ages dancing. The food at the restaurant is very good and there is a long porch outside with lots of rocking chairs-a great place to sit after dinner, have a drink, observe everyone and meet new friends! We...

The scenery and walks around the lake are brilliant, however we were here first weekend in July and it was so busy and noisy it spoiled the experience. Can't really complain because if I could holiday and spend most weekends here I surely would, however as a tourist who enjoys taking in the scenery it was too busy. If it's... More

This was my second Tom's to Redfish Lake and it is beautiful. Last time we rented a pontoon boat and toured the lake. This time we found a beach and camped out for the day. We played on SUP that friends rented at the marina. Also played on kayaks! Great fun! I wish we could have spent more time.

Great 6 mile (approximate) hike on well marked trail from Redfish Lake Lodge to top of Redfish Lake. Side trail to Bench Lakes adds about 3 miles RT and 1000 ft elevation (again approximate). Scheduled boat brings you back to Lodge for $10. Sweet.

Beautiful lake, but a bit crowded. A boat will take you across to save you miles in a beautiful hike.

Redfish Lake has it all. Fishing, boating, hiking, beauty, quiet mornings and a traditional lodge with live entertainment. Make sure to make reservations well in advance for either camping or Redfish Lodge. The limited overnight places are what keeps the crowds dispersed and make it a wonderful vacation destination. .

Below the stunning Sawtooth mountain range is a hidden gem called Red Fish Lake. A small rustic lodge and smaller cabins are nestled against the most beautiful lake surrounded by mountains and even white beaches. Family oriented with kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boats, and even a doggie beach. Camp sites surround the lake except for a small area where the... More
