Hop on a canoe, kayak or paddleboard from Backwoods Adventures and paddle the wild and scenic stretch of the Upper North Fork of the Payette River. Beginning at North Beach you’ll make your way up a meandering and gentle tributary enjoying the calm waters and opportunities to view deer, moose, otters, mink, eagles and osprey. Two hour and half-day rentals available.

Jump in the driver’s seat of a pontoon boat, ski boat or Waverunner from Cheap Thrills Rentals and play on Payette Lake at your own pace. Whatever your speed, plan ahead and book your watercraft rental early!


Step aboard The IDAHO and enjoy the expansive views of Payette Lake with a 90 Minute Public Cruise or Sunset Cruise with McCall Lake Cruises. Cruise trips launch Tuesday-Sunday each week and guests can sit back and relax on the top deck or inside the cozy cabin while learning about local history and various points of interest. Keep an eye out for Sharlie!
