Drive north from Ketchum and Sun Valley over Galena Pass and you will be transported into even more mind-blowing mountain beauty and splendor. The Sawtooth Valley is a mecca for backcountry junkies all year long—biking, skiing, rafting, camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, horseback riding—you name it, we’ve got it! The Smiley Creek Lodge just over the pass is a perfect base camp for all your outdoor activities. We offer our guests a variety of different lodging options, from cabins to teepees to camp spots. Our cozy dining room serves hearty food for breakfast and lunch (and sometimes dinner) every day and we are famous for our milkshakes! In the winter one of our most popular offerings is snowmobile rentals, and the system of nearby trails for exploring is incredibly fun and picturesque.
The Smiley Creek Airport is just across the highway and offers convenient access to miles and miles of recreation for those with small planes. At our general store you can find all the basic supplies and food items you might have forgotten. We are also happy to provide pack lunches for day outings or catering for special events. Don’t make a trip up the Sawtooth Mountains without visiting us here at Smiley Creek Lodge.
We will help make your stay an unforgettable experience!
