The historic town of McCall, Idaho, sits on the shores of beautiful Payette Lake, and is surrounded by the Payette National Forest. Originally a mining and logging camp, McCall today retains some of the charm and energy of an Old West town, but with all the modern services and conveniences needed to make it one of the best outdoor adventure spots in the world.
When you call McCall home, dining out provides you plenty of options, with everything from casual cafés like Bistro 45 to formal gourmet dining at Shore Lodge’s award-winning The Narrows and the stunning Lake Grill.
Every year McCall offers an array of festivals and events to celebrate the seasons. The Winter Carnival is always a fun family experience, 4th of July on the lake is unforgettable, the Payette Cup Regatta is pure Americana and Shore Lodge has its own movie theater with regular screenings.
The Manchester Ice & Events Centre, located in downtown, brings year-round skating, hockey, and events just minutes from your McCall home.
The first residents to call McCall home were Native American bands attracted by the plentiful game and wild foods around Payette Lake.
