Cougar Island to be auctioned off this month


An auction date has been set for Cougar Island in McCall. 

The 14.21-acre island is the largest in Payette Lake. The Idaho Department of Lands will auction the parcel off on September 14 at 1:30 p.m. 

Cougar Island can be purchased as an entire island or as five individual lots. The auction is taking place at the Water’s Edge Events Center at 287 E. Shore Drive. Bidders can also participate online. 

Two non-lake front lots and another parcel on the island have cabins. IDL said the bidding at the auction is for the lots only. Any costs for improvements will be sold at a fixed price of their appraised value.

Corbett Bottles is hosting the live action and will use Proxbid’s online platform. To participate pre-register by September 9 by emailing [email protected]

In August, the City of McCall hoped to designate Cougar Island as an Area of Critical Concern with the goal of stopping development on the land. However, the Valley County Board of Commissioners decided not to ratify the city’s resolution.
