The McCall area is the perfect summertime getaway from the Treasure Valley, with its never-ending road construction, occasional bad air quality and 100+ degree temperatures.

You've heard of bedroom communities--places people visit only to rest between workdays--but McCall is not one of those places. Call it a rec room community; or, better, one of the great four-season destinations in Idaho.

Fourth of July weekend in McCall is one of the area's busiest times, with Treasure Valley residents escaping the heat at home by heading to the forested shores of Payette Lake.
