Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Redfish Lake is one of Idaho's top summer destinations, and it's easy to see why. The 5-mile by 1-mile lake offers plenty of swimming, boating, kayaking, fishing, and camping opportunities, while the surrounding Sawthooth Mountains are ideal for hiking, backpacking, and horseback riding. 

Outlet Campground is one of the three campgrounds where reservations are available online; Glacier View and Point Campground are the two others. It is situated on the northeast side of the lake and offers amazing views of the Sawtooths and Mount Heyburn. The north shore offers some of the best swimming as the water is bit shallower than on the opposite side of the lake. 

The campground offers 18 standard nonelectric sites, flushing toilets, and a beautiful day use area. There are a few double sites within the campground that can be reserved. Each campsite has a picnic table and fire pit. Should you need it, firewood is available from the camp host for $6 a bundle. The Central Services dump station is about a mile away for those in need. Remember that you are in bear country, and it's important to put all your food, cooking utensils, and garbage away each night. 

Be sure to check out the local trails, and there's even a ferry shuttle should you want a lift to the hiking trails at the south end of the lake. Should you need any additional provisions, stop by the General Store near the lodge for ice, propane, snacks and even ice cream treats. 

Reservations are available from mid-May through mid-September; the sites then become available for walk-in reservations only through the end of September.
