“What a view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2011

Although pretty busy and hectic during the summer. Try to hit it off season - the lake and the views are beautiful.

“BEATIFUL LAKE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2011

Tough to be compared with Lake Tahoe, but Payette Lake is every bit as beautiful, just smaller. Spectacular setting. Places to picnic, swim, North Beach facilities with canoe and kayak rentals or just lay on the rocks.

“PRETTY DARN PRETTY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2011

We sat on the dock at the McCall "Yacht" Club for four hours yesterday and just soaked in the beauty. Beautiful lake with the Cascade Mountains for a backdrop. The yacht club is a bar that's open to the public. They were people friendly as well as pet friendly.
