Boat Rentals on Lake Cascade

You’ll be missing out if you visit any of the McCall, Idaho, resorts in the summer months without getting on the water — and one of the best ways to do that is by renting a boat or other watercraft at Lake Cascade. Tamarack Resort makes it easy with a plethora of boat rental options at the Waterfront Cabana.

Traveling with a big group of friends or extended family? Check out the pontoons or wake boats that seat more than a dozen people. (You can rent wakeboards and tubes, too!) Prefer to paddle around Lake Cascade under your own power? The Waterfront Cabana has stand up paddleboards, kayaks (tandem and single), and canoes, too.


White Water Idaho Rafting

If you’re staying at Tamarack Resort, it’s ultra convenient to book a whitewater rafting trip on the nearby Payette River. With an experienced guide at the helm, your trip includes a scenic float along some mellow stretches, as well as plenty of fun maneuvering through and getting sprayed by Class II and Class III rapids. Choose from half- or full-day trips that run May through mid-September.
