Situated on the east side of Redfish Lake between Outlet and Sockeye campgrounds you'll find Mount Heyburn Campground. There are 20 first-come, first-served sites nestled in the lodgepole forest. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and a fire pit. Due to the fact that this campground sits back from the water, it's often less crowded that its neighboring campgrounds. This is the closest campsite to the Sandy Boat Ramp, and the sites have plenty of room for trailer parking, making it a popular choice for boaters. There are vault toilets and potable water available.

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 Sawtooth Mountains are ideal for hiking, backpacking, and horseback riding. 

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. 

This campground is typically open from mid-May through mid-September pending snow levels in the area.
