Stanley, ID Paddle Sports
There is nothing quite like padding through the clear waters of Redfish Lake surrounded by the jagged Sawtooth range just outside of Stanley, Idaho. Redfish Lake is a popular place in the summer for paddling, swimming, camping, hiking and biking. You can rent kayaks or canoes right on the shore to explore this stunning mountain lake.
Summer is the best time to paddle along the lake, however even in the summer months the water can still be very cold – it’s snowmelt! Aside from paddling, there are also some great hiking trails circling the lake and extending up into the nearby Sawtooth mountains for those looking for a longer adventure. The best way to get here is flying into Sun Valley’s regional airport (SUN) in Hailey, and driving 75 miles north to this gateway to the Sawtooths.
