Payette Lake:

Whether it's the amazing Payette Lake, the beautiful mountain highs, or just the warmth of great communities, the Idaho Central Mountains has it all. 


Overview of location....

Lake Cascade is nestled in the majestic mountains of central Idaho about 75 miles north of Boise on State Highway 55. Popular for all types of boating, prevailing winds on the water make it especially well-suited for sailing and windsurfing. Rainbow trout, Coho salmon, and small mouth bass and perch can be caught from the shore or by boat in the summer or through the ice in the winter. 

Area Recreation

The North Fork of the Payette River, with its world-class kayaking rapids, flows to the south of Cascade. A challenging nine-hole golf course graces the southeast shore of the reservoir. During the winter, 800 miles of groomed snowmobile trails are available in the area.  Ski Brundage mountain 27 miles away, Bogus Basin 90 miles away, and of course Sun Valley 3 hours away. 


Tamarack’s vision is to offer a wide range of activities for sports and nature enthusiasts. The outstanding regional climate is ideal for a “year-round” recreational season. Winter snows here provide quality and depth greater than Aspen, Vail or Sun Valley. Summer days are clear with three times fewer rainy ones than most destination resorts in the Rockies. Longer, golden autumns bring little snow and mild weather, ideal for hunting, hiking and an extended golf season. 


The Frank Church Wildnerness

largest in the lower 48 states, opens eastward from the very doorstep of Tamarack. A varied guide and outfitter's community offers a variety of amenities such as rafting, world-class kayaking and multi-day hikes in the best of class. The Salmon and Payette Rivers offer some of the best fishing in the country. Hunting is diverse and particularly well managed thanks to the great expanse of lands. Access to the wilderness is conveniently available from McCall by air. Tamarack acts as a trailhead into this exceptional Wilderness allowing guests to alternate between resort recreation and true discovery with the Club. Activities directly available at the resort will be alpine skiing, nordic skiing, snow mobiling, golfing, biking, hiking, lake kayaking, sailing, fishing, water skiing and tennis.

Snowmobile enthusiasts will have access to over 500 miles of established, groomed trails on National Forest Land in the back country of Tamarack. A garage on the mountain is being provided to snowmobilers so that they may store their sleds and avoid interference with non-motorized users.
