McCall Idaho

McCall Idaho is a little mountain tourist town on the banks of Payette Lakeand is considered one of Idaho’s most popular recreation destinations. It has a small-town ritzy old-west-y ranch-y atmosphereJ. And it is surrounded by A TON of fun outdoor stuff.

It is also our base of operations for our Main Salmon Rafting trips.

Getting there:

McCall is about a 2 and a half hour drive from Boise Idaho.  On the last day of our Main Salmon trips we drive through McCall on the way back to Boise and we can arrange to drop people off.  We can also arrange short flights from McCall and Boise.  For custom Main Salmon Rafting trips we can even arrange flights from the river to McCall.

The B and B is the only one located in Downtown McCall and the rooms are awesome and there is a lake view hot tub on the roof. They also have a cabin rental that sleeps 8 and is great for families or groups.
