McCall (pop. 2,500) is a small resort town in west central Idaho on the shores of Payette Lake. With the country's largest wilderness areas to the east and the breathtaking Hells Canyon to the west, McCall's location is highly desirable for lovers of the outdoors.
McCall has a tourism-driven economy bolstered by several popular annual events. The Winter Carnival, a weeklong festival of music, snow sculptures, sled dog races, and fireworks, is highly anticipated each year. During ski season, McCall attracts visitors to the slopes at Brundage Mountain, and in the summer months travelers and locals alike enjoy water sports on Payette Lake. During the off-season, McCall turns back into a quiet mountain town again, off the main roads in the unspoiled Idaho countryside.
McCall is located in west central Idaho along State Highway 55.
