Things to Do in McCall

McCall is a ski resort town two hours north of Boise.  The town of 3,000 is situated on the southern shore of Payette Lake in the Payette National Forest.  Previously a logging town, McCall now quietly caters to tourists providing ample outdoor activities.

Where to Stay in McCall


When I visited McCall on my road trip, I camped in VANgo. While there are many campgrounds and RV Parks, dispersed camping is a little more difficult to find.  There is only one spot on Payette Lake on Eastside Drive.  It is next to a waterfall and a short trail out to a view, so sightseers might join you.
