When we imagine the perfect place to spend a summer, McCall definitely holds a place on the list. It’s a small town centered by a large, glacier lake and offers plenty of amenities and outdoor activities. You can hike and bike during the day and then cool off in cold, clear, pristine waters. From downtown, you can walk to Payette Lake, a grocery store, shops, restaurants, 2 breweries, and a state park. In addition to the obvious water activities, mountain biking is also popular here.
