Beautiful Payette Lake is the centerpiece of Ponderosa State Park, located in the heart of one of Idaho’s most popular year-round destinations. Hike and bike on your own or with a guide, listen to a park naturalist around an evening campfire, let the kids ride to the Visitor Center for ice cream treats, rent a canoe or kayak and meander along the Payette River, snowshoe on a groomed trail or simply sit on the front porch of a park cabin and enjoy the spectacular view.
