Located about 100 miles north of Boise, McCall is one of Idaho’s most popular resort towns. Set on the shores of Payette Lake, McCall sits adjacent to Ponderosa State Park and just below Brundage Mountain, the area’s well-known ski resort. McCall is also home to the U.S. Forest Service Smokejumper Base. This quaint mountain town has a population of approximately 3,000 people and is just a few miles away from other popular resort destinations such as Cascade, Donnelly and the new Tamarack Resort. Due to McCall’s mountainous surroundings and lakeside location, outdoor recreation is extremely popular to both its residents and visitors. Some winter activities include Nordic and alpine skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice-skating, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, tubing and sleigh rides.
In the spring and summer, camping, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and golfing are all quite popular activities. Due to the town’s lakeside location, water sports such as jet skiing, boating, water skiing, windsurfing, wakeboarding and sailing are also very popular. McCall is also famous for its annual Winter Carnival. During this well-known weekend event, as many as 45 ice sculptures carved by locals and local businesses can be seen on display throughout the area. Visitors will also enjoy a parade, dances, games and plenty of great food at this family event.
