We had our young grandsons and they enjoyed playing in the sand on the beach. The water was crystal clear, and they could wade out to see the small fish darting around.

Super cold. Super awesome. Just a wild, wild experience. A true natural gem in the middle of some insanely beautiful mountains and hiking trails.

We love chilling on the lawn listening to music. They usually have a band every thursday. The food is off the hood and you can eat outside while listening to some good tune.

We absolutely love our annual vacation to Redfish Lodge each year. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, swimming, boating, cruising, delicious food - and most of all, being disconnected from the rest of the world. This place is a rare place on earth that is truly majestic....More

There were no boats allowed on the small lake when I was there. I was told that the fishing at redfish was not great. There's a fishing store in Stanley with a knowledgeable owner and would be worth a phone call. He told us... More
