“Interesting Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We left Hailey and travelled to our next stop. Along the way we happened upon Redfish Lake. We found the campground but it was very busy. The drive is between 45-60 minutes from Ketchum. Have lunch either at the Galena Lodge or the Stanley Bakery. Galena is about 25 minutes before Redfish. We called intio the Firestry Commission at Ketchum and they lent us a free scenic drive CD. It was fantastic. Recommend you do this.

“Spectacular setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We took a day to drive through the wilderness areas around Ketchum, ending up at Redfish Lake in time to chat with the guys getting ready to stock the lake with trout that evening. The resort and campgrounds aren't open for the season yet, but we drove around anyway and enjoyed the snow-capped mountain views. This looks like an amazing place to come for camping and fishing, and we'll definitely be back again.

“Too touristy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I used to visit Redfish when I was a child. Then it was fun. Now too many people. Too touristy. I prefer places that aren't as settled.
