“One of the most beautiful lakes in Idaho!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

I have enjoyed this lake my entire life. This glacial lake is surrounded by beautiful mountains and is great for boating. To enjoy the lake's beauty, take a drive around the lake. There are several hotels on or near the lake. Campgrounds are available at Ponderosa State Park. Only two plus hours from Boise, you won't regret the drive.

“Pontoon Boat ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Rented pontoon boats from "Cheap Thrills" and they were great at giving us instruction about the boats and the lake. Water is cold but feels great when it's hot. Nice clean water.

“Beautiful and clean lake.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Lake Payette Lake reminded me of a smaller Lake Tahoe. Beautiful mountains, clean and cool water. Fun for all family members with boating and jet skiing.
