Summer in the McCall Mountains is one of the best times of year lasting from June through August. You find yourself with so many choices and unfortunately not enough time. From white water rafting the world class rapids to hiking the majestic mountain peaks, cruising on a glacier created lake and biking amazing trails, or taking advantage of the largest wilderness area in the lower 48 states, the Frank Church Wilderness Area, McCall truly becomes the base camp to it all.
