Spring in McCall blends the perfect mix of winter and summer. Central Idaho is one of the best hiking and mountain biking destinations in the West. McCall is a year-round resort community in Idaho’s west central mountains. It embraces the southern shore of the magnificent Payette Lake. The recreational activities abound. Take in the amazing views, enjoy shopping, arts & culture, music and nightlife, hiking and biking, golf, water sports, rafting, jet boating, fishing, or off-road riding. One look at the towering pines, flowing aspens and birch, magnificent meadows and dramatic snow-capped mountain vistas and you will realize you could only be in stunning Idaho.
