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 from the wonderful scenery. There are boats, and canoes for rent, along with a ferry which will take you across the lake for great hiking trails. If you want a room or a cabin, be sure to make reservations. Stanley is a short drive north where day trips on the Salmon River are also readily available. We locals go to Redfish, and if the locals rave, you will too.
