Red Fish Lake - This place is truly amazing. There is four camp grounds and a lodge on the lake. We stayed at the Red fish Outlet Campground, it was the first campground on the east side of the lake, we liked it so mush we stayed for a whole week. This campground has a beautiful tree lined white sand beach, no dogs, but no one seemed to care. There is also a off leash dog beach near the lodge and one right next to the lodge where you can sit with your dog on leash. Swimming is great, but cold. The beach at the camp ground is shallow as well as near the lodge, there is also a beautiful beach at the other camp ground to the west of the lodge, with a dice dock you can jump off of, but this one is tents only. Canoeing and kayaking on the lake are top notch, I recommended exploring the other side of the lake, there is hiking waterfalls and smaller lakes to explore. We canoed back and forth to the lodge with our dog witch was a blast. I had and all day experience kayaking and exploring the other side of the lake. And we also rented a small boat from the lodge to cross the lake and went on a hike up to the waterfall with the puppy. The lodge has a great bar, good food, and is a great place to sit out front of on the Adirondack chairs. We where there the first week of September, the week days after labor day. The lake and campground where full, but not crowded, I did here that on labor day the beach was like going to Miami beach. Although it wasn't very crowded, we did have to stay in Stanley one night at Mountain Village Resort Because we couldn't find a camp spot, the next day we moved to red fish and scored the only open spot, later moving to lake front when it opened up. It was super smokey this year do to all fires in the west, but I did clear out after a couple of days. The Saw Tooth mountains are amazing jagged and beautiful, and are only rivaled in beauty by the Grand Tetons in the lower 48. Poo - kay Like most state parks it's a pit.

The lake is pretty busy and noisy but this campground is within walking distance. I would recommend Mt Heyburn, Mtn View or Chinook over this one. We were surprised to get good unboosted cell service in this area. The Lodge has great menus for all meals and very nice cabins for non-rv folks. We went down to Little Redfish Lake with our SUP and had the place to ourselves.
