We have been here both winter and summer and have enjoyed it in both seasons. Any time of year the view across the lake is of snow capped peaks. Boating, fishing and swimming are popular pastimes. The air is clear and smog free. We lovevit.

We had the best fishing trip. Rob and Russ made our trip so enjoyable. Captain Rob was very nice and made us feel at home on his boat. Russ was everywhere during the whole trip, and was so helpful. From the start to finish we enjoyed every minute. The boat was very comfortable and had a nice ride. Our lunch of hot dogs/sausages was a nice surprise. We had really great fishing (2-sturgeon, smallmouth, trout, and whitefish), and during the fight with the sturgeon Rob and Russ were on their game.

Brundage Mountain

Located high in the mountains of Central Idaho, Brundage Mountain is best known for its powder-packed glades and luxuriously wide groomed runs. Blessed with over 320 inches of snowfall annually, Brundage has an undisputed reputation for the Best Snow in Idaho™. 1,500 acres of terrain and 1,800 feet of vertical make Brundage Mountain a mid-sized resort that 'skis big'.

Reviewed By Chuck S - Idaho

Very nice resort, primarily serving the locals, including a wealthy but laid back group of homeowners from Boise who enjoy winter and summer. Some excellent skiers who go off trail, Brundage attracts powder hounds. Grooming fair. Bluebird Express is the classic lift, Centennial is slow and long. Nice intermediate and some longer, slightly harder green runs. Moderate cost, high quality skiing. Excellent views of Payette Lake and mountains.

Reviewed By Sarah V

Stopped by with my family to check it out... The man behind the desk was less then helpful... I asked if I could check out the springs and revived a rude short "NO. You can look through the window." I peeked through the window although I don't know why...I would not support a place with such a rude person taking my money. Save your self the short drive and keep heading down the road.. Lots of nice hotspots in Idaho but this one sucks.

Ponderosa State Park

Located just 1.5 miles from downtown McCall, Ponderosa State Park is a year round destination park. Covering a thousand-acre peninsula that juts into Payette Lake, this picturesque state park offers guided walks with naturalists, campfire programs and camping facilities. During winter months the park has groomed Nordic Ski trails and snowshoe trals.

Camping, in trailer or cabin, is always nice at Ponderosa State Park. Gorgeous. I do wish people would keep their dogs on leash even when hiking. Our dogs are not as friendly as some, and they just about took the head off some lady’s dog because she was letting it run free, and it ran up to our two leashed (LARGe) dogs. Use a leash. It makes it safe for everyone.

We went tubing right around New Years. They had changed the way you went up hill with tubes but didn't change the experience just a little different. We had kids as young as 6 to seniors with us and we all had a blast. Listen to the staff when the recommend specific tubes it will change your experience! Parking lot is kind of a pain but just breathe and practice patience.

Art Roberts Park

Reviewed By CrankingChick - Tucson, Arizona

We were passing through the area on a road trip in July and stopped in McCall for lunch. I wanted to take a photo of Payette Lake and this small, scenic park was across the street from the restaurant. It was a nice place to walk around and stretch our legs before getting back in the car. It has a sloped grass lawn area good for picnics or playing and a small swimming beach with pier. I enjoyed the amusing bear sculpture and watching the children playing in the water. There's a public restroom, too.
