Built in 1929, Redfish Lake Lodge sits on 16 acres of U.S. Forest Service permitted land on the north shore of this five-mile long glacial lake in the lap of the Sawtooth Mountains. Since its construction, the Lodge has catered to visitors as they come to enjoy the “jewel of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area.”
Other than a couple of additions, the Lodge remains much the same as it was back in 1929. In the main Lodge, you will find the front desk, the dining room, and rustic lounge all on the main level. The second level has 8 motel rooms for guests and some housing for our key employees. Out on the property, you will find 21 historic and modern cabins and 11 motel/suite style units. In addition, the General Store is next to the lodge and offers groceries, souvenirs, camping and fishing supplies, and many unique gifts. The marina offers motorized and non-motorized rentals, lake tours, fuel, and a shuttle service to the popular trail-heads at the far end of the lake. You will not want to miss our outdoor food and beverage gazebo. The gazebo compliments the full service dining room by offering lunch and dinner 7 days a week from mid-June to Labor Day – weather permitting.
On the northern end of the property, you will find a friendly service station with fuel and snacks. Nearby is the Public Shower and Laundromat. The Redfish Corrals highlight the area and offer 1 1/2 hour, 1/2 day, full-day, and multi-day guided rides on horseback.
Redfish Lake Lodge is located 60 miles north of Sun Valley and 6 miles south of Stanley just off of Highway 75. The Lodge is in a unique setting with excellent access to hiking trails, lakes, and mountain peaks. Especially suited for hiking, climbing, and fishing, the area is also enjoyed by those who wish to run the rivers, photograph, or learn of the charming history.
Redfish Lake Lodge is owned by Arlen and Derrel Crouch, natives of Jerome, Idaho. Mr. Crouch visited and fell in love with the area as a boy. The Crouch family operates the Lodge and feels a great sense of stewardship in preserving the historical and natural wonders of the area. They are committed to improving the resort and making it an even better place for the many guests who visit each year.
Jeff and Audra Clegg, son-in-law and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Crouch, manage the day-to-day operations of Redfish Lake Lodge. Jeff and Audra, along with their six children, live on-site during the summer.
