Facilities are a yurt and out door bathrooms, but they are clean and well maintained. It has several pools, each with a different temperature from very hot to warm. Pools are cleaned every Tuesday. Open at night a great experience. Also open in winter, drive your snowmobile there if you wish. After getting off hwy55, it's mostly a dirt road... More

Several pools of very warm to lukewarm water in a picturesque location. Relaxed, casual environment. Swarms of people lost this place a star--the water cycles downward with the upper hottest pools appearing more clean. It gets pretty murky at the lower pools. It would be worth an extra cost to limit the number of people allowed in at one time.

Best hot springs we visited on the trip. Reasonable entry fee and clean, modern pools. Very family friendly. Light snacks/beverages sold on site at cheap prices. Dusty 4-mile road leading to springs. Glen (manager) was awesome and even played a few Dead songs to pass the time! Uppermost pool was blistering hot (loved it!) and subsequent lower pools are all... More

Wife and I loved the hot springs. The yurt office and changing rooms give it a proper mountain allure. Great place and plan to stay long, for it is blissful.

The road leading back to the spring is posted as narrow and winding. It's also dirt and has some lovely views of the river. The hot springs are charming and somewhat rustic (port-a-potties). Some of the pools are done in flagstone, some are more like a traditional pool and one even has a white sand bottom. There are a goodly... More

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
