Well I am very disappointed.. My boyfriend and I have both lived in donnelly where gold fork is at for many years. After my last two experiences I have got to say I will never go back! The biggest issue I have with gold fork is the fact people can drink in the pool. The last two times I have... More

Even on a busy Labor Day weekend this place is awesome. People are generally accommodating on space and don't crowd each other. This place is big enough. Relaxing in the warm pool or in a lounge chair by the sandy pool, there are never any complaints. We went with two adults and 2 kids, cost 28 bucks (kinda pricey I... More

We went here on a weekend after snowmobiling.. The road in can be icy in the winter time. And you do have to hike up to the pools from the parking lot. The road walking up was extremely icy and I almost fell but a family member caught me. There are several pools with different temperatures.. Bring cash they do... More

We were mid week on Wednesday and it wasn't long before there were lots of family's with kids. The series of pools are progressively cooler as they flow out of... More

This place has been around forever, but has been remade into a wonderful get a way. The forest setting, off a well maintained road, & off the grid. Lots of solar use, nice porta-potties, and a changing area yurt. Multiple pools - clean & NOT chlorine laced. HOT to medium choices & great area for kids as well. Your own... More

This is a beautiful seeting for enjoying the cool, warm, and hot pools. We used them all, we spent 2 hours there. My recommendation would be to get there right when they open, because they fill up fast. by the time we were leaving there was quite a few people coming in. You can bring your own food, and drink...

Great place for a romantic evening when the torches are lit and the stars are many. Does not get much better. Sand under your toes and hot water to float your cares away.

Very nice pools, clean water, multiple temperature pools, surprising landscaping for such an out of the way attraction. A pool for everyone of all ages. A rough road to get there, but don't get discouraged - the drive is worth it. Our group of people ages 8 to 59 all enjoyed the experience. Reasonably priced $8 adults, $5 kids. Changing... More

The best hot springs I've ever been to! Totally worth the $8. The pools are large and vary in temperature. The deck area, tables and chairs are great for relaxing by the hot pool and having a snack. Loved that we could bring in our own drinks and snacks. The only off putting thing was having to use a almost... More

A beautiful day in the McCall area and we headed out to the hot springs shortly after the noon time opening. A nice friendly person tells you all that you need to know, and a nice dressing room to change in, store your belongs, borrow a hat to keep the sun off your face and you are ready to enjoy... More
