Build your mountain retreat and family legacy at River Ranch McCall that delivers the very best in four-seasons living.

McCall, Idaho




Nestled on the shores of Payette Lake, McCall is one of Idaho’s hidden treasures and a favorite resort destination for locals and tourists alike. Minutes from the regional airport that delivers air charter services that can accommodate almost any corporate or private jet, McCall is easily accessible. Steps away from the mountains, lakes, and rivers that make this area grand, McCall is the epitome of what the natural side of Idaho can deliver. In addition to the majesty of the great outdoors just beyond your doorstep, McCall also offers the charm of a quaint downtown area rich with art, cultural performances, boutique shopping, and dining that ranges from five-star elegance to lively, local cafes. It is this bounty of benefits that began the evolution of what would become River Ranch.

The River Ranch dream began in 1985 when the Hart Family purchased a working cattle ranch in McCall. Enticed by the 360-degree views, meandering pastures, and crystalline mountain waters of the Payette River, they knew at once that this was a property to treasure for generations to come. “There’s a long-term legacy because of the river, the town, being just a mile from the lake, the ski mountain, and two and a half miles of river frontage,” says Dennis Hart. “We knew we could create a high-quality development… something we would want to live in”. They value the existing natural environment; the importance of preserving and enhancing the area they know and love was paramount in the development. And enhance they did!



To enhance privacy, berms were shaped for each lot and 3000 mature trees planted with care and attention to distinguish 71 unique homesites that average 5 acres and ensure privacy, water views, and ample open space. Residents may choose between one of only 16 River Lots, each with over 100+ feet of Payette River frontage, 11 River View Estate lots, 30 Lake Front Estate Lots ranging between four and ten acres and located on one of the five community lakes within River Ranch, or the 6 Cabin Lots and 8 Cabin Lake Front Lots each of which offers two or more acres.

The amenities offered to homeowners are as impressive as the location that surrounds them. Within the River Ranch community there is direct connection to 30 paved miles of the City of McCall's bike and walking trail system. The Community Ranch House gives access to all homeowners to enjoy from the Ranch's unique riverside Family Picnic Pavilion. During winter months, the Ranch's multi-use nordic trail allows residents beautiful views of the snow covered banks and icy waters of the Payette River. A casual, fun place to gather, the Ranch House offers a gourmet catering kitchen available for outdoor events. There’s a pool, hot tub, barbeque area, and a sandy beach to enjoy. Residents also have access to the secured boat slips at Mile High Marina on Payette Lake; an amenity exclusively offered to Ranch River owners and their guests. And while speaking of water fun, River Ranch has a 21-foot, single hull, electric powered boat available to homeowners and their guests to explore McCall’s stunning Payette Lake.



Trapper Cabin is a unique offering for homeowners to take advantage of while building their own Ranch River dream home. The serene, three-bedroom cabin is available while your future home is being constructed or as a rental home available to guests of residents.

And while those guests are visiting, entertain them with biking, running, or groomed winter trails, all seven and a half miles of which are connected to the City of McCall’s thirty-mile bike trail system. Of course, one can’t forget about the five brilliantly clear lakes – all perfect for fishing, canoes, kayaking, paddle boarding, rowing, or simply enjoying a memorable lakeside sunset. And one of the most notable features of River Ranch is the two and a half miles of Payette River access that all residents enjoy.

You can also enjoy an array of winter sports during the winter, from skiing to tubing to snowmobiling. River Ranch is a magical place for those who love four-season living.



To ensure time at River Ranch is as perfect as it can be, exclusive concierge services are available to residents for activity planning, whether it’s a river rafting excursion, a perfect date night, or a tee time at the nearby McCall’s Golf Club. And as a gated community, the thoughtfully designed covered bridge entry is a welcoming testament to the beauty the lies just within.
