Ponderosa State Park covers most of a 1,000-acre peninsula that juts into Payette Lake, just outside McCall. The character of the park is molded by its diverse topography. It ranges from arid sagebrush flats to a lakeside trail; from flat, even ground to steep cliffs; and from dense forest to spongy marsh. Nature trails and gravel roads have been developed so visitors can enjoy these areas. Camping is available in the park and nearby at the McCall Outdoor Science School. Winter activities include Nordic skiing and snowshoeing.

Camping
You can RV, tent or yurt camp at Ponderosa. Additional camping is also available at the nearby, McCall Outdoor Science School. For camping reservations at the park, call 1-866-634-3246 or on line at www.parksandrecreation.idaho.gov


North Beach Area
At the north end of Payette Lake lies the 500-acre North Beach Unit with the largest public sandy beach on the lake. North West Passage Campground has 22 non-reservable sites offering central water and vault toilets The Payette River winds placidly through timbered country and provides excellent canoeing. The area is also a sanctuary for wildlife including moose, deer, ducks, fish and numerous small fur-bearing animals.

Cross Country Skiing
Home to one of Idaho's Premium Nordic Ski Grooming opportunities, Ponderosa State Park boasts 14.3 miles of groomed trails - 23 kilometers. Nordic trails range from recreational to competition to accommodate all abilities.

"We had a beautiful hike, but the trail was poorly marked. We had our 4 yr old and 8 yr old, so we planned to do the loop (Meadow Marsh). We got pretty confused as to where to turn and luckily we were able to find a sign, after walking off the trail and finding the correct one. Not sure how we got where we were. Thankfully we found our way back and it was a great experience, but it could have turned out bad if we hadn't found our way back."
