I always like to bring family here when they are visiting the area. Several pools give you options for hear level, and there's lots of space for kids to play. Changing rooms are small, so be prepared for that, but otherwise fun and relaxing.

Great outdoor setting and choice of pools to sit in. The small very hot one is a about 110 degrees. The large pool is 104 degrees and lots of room to sit. Be prepared for families and kids and not necessarily a quiet soak. But the water is EXCELLENT and very soothing. Couldn't believe how soft our skin felt even... More

Have always enjoyed soaking at Gold Fork. 6 different pools with different temps. The largest pool is of course my favorite. Seeing the water trickle down the rocks. Kids have always like the sandy pool.

This place is great, ignore the negative reviews and experience it for yourself. I've visited a lot of private hot springs in Idaho and this place takes the cake. For $8 an adult you wont find a nicer hot springs- the setting is tranquil, the employees are very nice. We were there on Valentines and it was busy but still... More

Pros and cons. It is apparent that many of these good reviews are 'planted' which is a common problem with trip advisor anyway. Pros. Rustic, nice temperature for the pools. That's about it..... Cons. Alcohol everywhere, the worker there denied it until we showed the overflowed trash cans and the beer cans surrounding the pool. Foul language everywhere. Pools were... More

Went up last month, was a bit foggy, the tiki torches were glowing through the fog and the pools were very well maintained. Even though this is an established hot springs, it is blended very beautifully into the background.

This is not your fancy 5 star resort/spa! That is why people love it, it has a rustic charm and atmosphere. It has grown in popularity over the years, If you want quiet and peaceful, don't visit on the weekend or holidays. It's a great large pool, is clean and has the perfect temperature for me. It gets really hot... More

GORGEOUS! Thus, you should definitely go. But, come dressed in your bathing suit, complete with a warm robe, towel and coats/boots in the winter months. There is a teeny tiny changing room in the yurt, but, it was almost impossible to get into on a busy winter weekend. The pools are beautiful, clean, and vary in temperature to make sure... More

We have a second home in the area and have always heard about the hot springs as a "must do", so my family and I decided to try it out. The road there is plowed and maintained, however I do recommend AWD to get there. Once there I was surprised to find that the "snack bar", office, and changing rooms... More

I have visited several times....but last night was disappointing. The springs were super crowded. A lot of beer drinking and foul language. We did go at about 9:30pm so this may be why the crowd was a bit brash. Since this was a holiday weekend, it seemed busier than usual. $8.00/ticket. They don't accept credit cards...so bring cash or checks.... More
