Crystal clear lake under the giant Sawtooth mountains. Fishing, wildlife, boating, hiking and more only an hour from Sun Valley.

“Redfish Lake is a must see gem of the Sawtooths”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Stunning view, pristine water, great hiking trails from both sides of the lake, nice day picnic/beach area, beach that allows dogs. Rustic but very nice old lodge on the lake. Great camp spots. Small grocery store. Our family spent wk ends here for years. You can make reservations for campspots but when they open the reservations, the lake side spots go quickly.

“Scenery is beautiful, crowds in the summer not so much”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Redfish lake is beautiful. The sawtooth mountains behind the lake are breathtaking and perfect for pictures when they reflect off the lake. I never get tired of going to this lake. The lake is extremely crowded in the summertime especially around the lodge. My favorite time of year for the lake is autumn but you never know how the weather will be in the mountains.

“Redfish Lake and lodge is the tourist destination in Stanley, Idaho”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

If you want the busiest spot with the most amenities in Stanley Idaho then Redfish Lake and the lodge area are for you. The lake is beautiful. The lodge is nice and well situated. There are boat amenities on this lake. If you want to camp, I would suggest the Mountain View campground on Little Redfish Lake though the main lake campgrounds are nice too.
