we have been visiting here, since forever, before it was commercialized even....and for us it really isn't worth the $8 to visit on a regular basis. the service can be awful or wonderful if you happen to have rebecca. the yurt is always wet, smelly, and rather disgusting. theft is a common problem. the pool is very nice despite everything...

... If you have the time to drop out of the world, drive back into Gold Fork hot Springs. The natural surroundings, multiple pools, tiki torches, fog, dark, lovely water. An wonderful and exotic experience. The location is both the best and the worst thing about Gold Forks: it means a long drive, but that long drive keeps it from... More

I've been taking my family here for years now. Great place for the kids and adults alike. Price is decent @ 8 bucks an adult and 6 per child. You can bring your own food and drinks which is great. The place is beautiful and surrounded by pine covered mountains and very clean. I highly recommend a visit this is... More

My husband and I experienced the Hot Springs on a Monday. There was snow all around but the 6 mile drive was plowed the whole way, so it was no problem even in a car. We had the springs to ourselves and we loved it. Yes the dressing rooms are only closed with a curtain, no big deal, lockers were... More

Gold Fork Hot Springs is a very unique place. Some of these reviews complain about the 6 miles of dirt road to get out there, but I personally enjoy the nice drive through the country and along the Gold Fork River. Nice scenery on the way out, and the location provides a soak in the trees...much better than being by... More

This was my first experience to the Gold Fork hot spings and I must say I was very disappointed with the hotsprings. The drive out was 6 miles of gravel one lane roads with lots of ruts. When we got to the hotspings we had to sign a waver in order to use the springs.( I have been to a... More

We were pleasantly surprised by these hot springs outside of Donnelly. Most of the hot springs I have visited have a strong sulfur odor that puts a damper on the experience. However, we were informed that the Gold Fork is not a sulfur spring, rather a lithium spring. The lack of sulfur enhances the complete experience! Each pool flows to... More

A welcome suprise after a long drive from Boise. The pools are wonderful and the nearby creek is a good alternative to the hot pools. Bring your fishing poles!
