Redfish Lake is an alpine lake in the western United States in central Idaho. It is located in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, at the base of the Sawtooth Mountains in Custer County, south of Stanley.

Redfish Lodge sits 6,550 feet above sea level, where the water is crystal clear and the beaches are sandy. Redfish Lake Lodge resort thrives on the north shore of this pristine glacier-carved lake, in the heart of the Sawtooth Mountain Range. Here, you and your family can literally “turn your back on the grind of the civilized world” as Robert Limbert proclaimed when he stacked the first log back in 1929. Sawtooth country changes people. Its beauty is magnificent and unadulterated.

Redfish has excellent fishing opportunities for sockeye salmon. The lake is regularly stocked and provides one of the easiest opportunities to catch these deep-water dwellers. Fly fishers will also find the area alluring as many large creeks teeming with trout litter the landscape around Redfish Lake. The nearby Redfish Lodge offers a variety of watercraft for rent to get you and your family out into the lake’s pristine waters. For those who consider themselves anything but amphibious, there’s plenty to do on dry land as well.

There are two on Little Redfish Lake, Chinook Bay Campground and Mountain View Campground. There is another on the west side of the lake near the north end, Point Campground. Point Campground is next to the Redfish Lake Lodge. There is a campground on the hills above Northshore picnic area, Glacierview Campground. There is another near Redfish Lake Creek, Outlet Campground. Finally, there are two more along the east side of the lake, Mt. Heyburn Campground and Sockeye Campground.

Sandy Beach Boat Ramp is located on the east shore by Mt Heyburn Campground. It has the only boat ramp on Redfish Lake. Many boats are moored by the beach on the sandy shores. Redfish Lake Lodge offers mooring buoys, but there is a fee and these buoys must be reserved.
