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

Yes, I know, the title has been used before. But that's the only way I could title this review! We (my wife and I) have been Hot Springers for years. We've been to all the good ones, at least most of them, in not only the PNW, but Montana, Utah, and California. We've gone on hot springs road trips, and... More

Located in the mountains near Donnelly these hot springs are great for the whole family. Clean and friendly atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Don't let the road in stop you, dirt but usually in good shape. The hot water is most relaxing. As a bartender at the Donnelly club, I am asked Quite often what to see and do. Every one I... More

Always our family favorite. We have visited numerous times, and have never been disappointed! Our favorite time to go is in the winter. The place is entirely lighted by candles, tiki torches and small solar lamps. Very clean and a reasonable price. Plus a yurt for your use as a changing area. Each pool has a different temperature, and they... More

6 pools, two porta potties, 1 yurt with a dressing room, throw rugs between your bare feet and the snow. Not very fancy, but the water...ahhh! Mineral hot springs pour from the rocks above and spill into each lower, cooler pool. Very kid friendly yet romantic. Don't let the gravel road and icy turns scare you off (but be sure... More

Set in the forest of the Idaho Mountains, you can relax and enjoy the crystal clear naturally hot water pools. We like to spend a couple of nights at the Ashley Inn (in Cascade, 20 min. away) and then come here in the afternoon. Very clean, bring you own towels though. Follow the directions. At one point you may think... More

We knew nothing about these hot springs - we just noticed a sign on the highway and took the turn. The road there is twisty and full of loose cows but that just added to the magic. When we arrived we found out that it's a fully developed facility - changing room, office, mobile toilets, multiple very well maintained and... More
