Redfish Lake

Redfish Lake, in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, is named for the brilliant Sockeye Salmon that once came to spawn in such massive quantities that the lake appeared red. The visitor center offers a variety of interpretive activities and evening programs, including exhibits about the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, geology, history and wildlife. Guests can also find three different auto tape/cd tours for the three scenic byways that converge in this area. Three main dive sites exist: Dead Fall, The Wall, and Point Campground to Schoolhouse Rock.

Several campsites exist at the lake, subject to availability. Most of the season, camping is by reservation only.

Fees: $5.00/day parking fee, subject to change
