Most gorgeous scenery for photographs i have yet found in Idaho.. beautiful backdrops. Place can be busy in summer.. especially the beaches, but there are also some quite spots if you look hard enough.

Redfish lake was highly recommended by visitors at the Sun Valley Reaoert s well as restaurant owners. All stated - you haven't seen Idaho until you visit Redfish Lake. It was well worth the drive. Beautiful and serene.

The water was crystal clear! The views, magnificent! They even had a dog beach so that everyone can bring their loved ones! We paddle boarded, but this lake is a perfect place for all water sports

We loved the views. Kayaking and canoes on lake with camping near by. Great spot for weddings. The lodge offered a Sunday Brunch that is very nice. The views of the Sawtooth Mountains are awesome. Front porch of Lodge has comfortable chairs for just enjoying views. Small store on site. Overflow parking lot.

Nestled at the foot of a spectacular mountain range the lake is large with lots of small boats. There is a small shop with snacks and coffee.

A stunningly beautiful lake situated in the Sawtooth Mountains, this spot offers a variety of outdoor activities: swimming, hiking, boating, sailing, camping or just plain relaxing if that's what you are in the mood for. Bottom line, it's well worth the trip and once you get there the beauty of the area will leave you in awe.

What a beautiful place. It was clean and not too crowed but people were having fun. Everyone got lunch and ate outside, no bugs but average bar food. We did like eating and being able to feel like we were in a calendar photo!

Beautiful, large lake with a wealth of facilities incl. Lodge, restaurants, boat and kayaks etc. Lots of hiking. However we did not enjoy the hike along a hot, rocky and dusty trail with way to many horse flies. We were told that taking a boat ride across the lake $$ would take us to much better trails. Maybe next time.

Redfish is another 'what you see is what you get", with a whole lot more crowd than many pictures suggest. The lake and surrounding grounds can be very busy with families and it may not be the place to go if you're seeking solitude. Otherwise, a gem in Sawtooth.
