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.

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...More
