Great place to enjoy Idaho at it's best.

Redfish is a great place to take the family for boating, hiking, beach time and relaxation. One of the most beautiful lakes in Idaho!

The drive up to Redfish Lake is simply gorgeous and proved to be a highlight of my visit to Idaho. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking and the Lake itself is pristine and beautiful. I had lunch at the restaurant on the Lake and spent a few hours there. This was a special excursion.

beautiful in Sept. Aspen leaves not golden yet but the scenery is spectacular. small but excellent portion of the lake shore dedicated for dogs off leash! even though I did not have a dog - the area was still wonderful for being amused by doggie antics.

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.
