Iconic Redfish Lake Lodge and area, definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. The Lodge is really rustic and nice, there's a small beach area, the water is crystal clear. We've heard that Bench Lake and the hikes around this area are amazing. We love this place however, during the summer it has become crazy-busy. We prefer to... More

All I can say is beautiful. I spent a little bit of time here over one afternoon and would love to come back and spend some more time. Looks like a great place for family and friends to hang out. I didn't even know this place existed until my friend took me there. This whole area is gorgeous!

We didn't have a reservation at the lodge there, but came for a day visit. The lake is magnificent with the jagged Sawtooth Mountains in the background and the clear blue waters of the lake. This is a popular place with all sorts of water activities and hiking opportunities so be prepared for the crowd. We had a wonderful hike... More

Spent the day here with family. Being from the east coast it was great to see that they have a section of the lake dedicated to dogs. Nothing like that where I come from. A must see if your are in the area.

The picture on Trip Advisor doesn't accurately reflect the dated cramped, underfurnished cabins jammed together in a beautiful setting until the hundreds of nearby campers descend on the lodge and area. The waiters/waitresses in the restaurant were very good, but the food was overpriced and the food average. The price of the dated, horrible cabin was ridiculous and I will... More

Took the lake cruise with volunteer guide - really informative and beautiful. Loved the dock area with lots of sand and clear/shallow water - perfect for trying out paddle boarding, kayaking, and playing with young family members.

Great lake to enjoy kayaking on. We took the boat shuttle across the lake to hike to Bench lakes. Boat ride only took 9 minutes. The hike to Bench lakes was great & offered great views of Redfish lake as you worked your way up.
